Israel raids charity


Israel raided the Hebron offices of a charity that it says assists Hamas.

Organizations like the Islamic Charity Movement “aim at empowering the terror organization and its grip upon the civilian population, as part of its campaign to heighten the level of terrorism against Israel and gain increasing power in Judea and Samaria,” an Israeli army statement said Tuesday, hours after the raid.
The army sealed the office and confiscated part of its property.

Hamas rejects Israel’s existence and poses a challenge to moderates in the Palestinian Authority.
