Assailants open fire at ICRC headquarters in southern West Bank

April 20, 2017 9:37 A.M. (Updated: April 20, 2017 5:18 P.M.)
HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Unknown assailants opened fire at the International Committee of the Red Cross' (ICRC) headquarters in Hebron City in the southern occupied West Bank overnight Wednesday.

The shooting notably damaged the headquarters’ gate and an ICRC vehicle.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that Palestinian police had opened an investigation and were searching for the assailants, adding that a vehicle suspected of being used in the shooting had been seized.

An ICRC spokesperson told Ma’an that the organization “strongly condemned the attack,” adding that they did not have further information as of Thursday morning.

ICRC’s work in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory notably includes coordinating with Israeli authorities to arrange family visitations for Palestinian prisoners, although the organization faced anger last year when it reduced the number of monthly visits it facilitates.
