RAMALLAH, 11 December 2012 (WAFA) –Israeli Forces Tuesday raided and ransacked Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights office as well as another two civil organizations’ offices in Ramallah, said a statement by Addameer.
It stated that the soldiers have confiscated four laptops, one hard disk and a video camera among other materials and destroyed the office; desks, ransacked filing cabinets and files and scattered files around the office.
“At this moment, we are not clear as to what has been confiscated, but in the coming days we will know more about the level of destruction and damage,” the statement clarified.
