HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces raided Palestinian Authority (PA) offices and two homes in Hebron’s Old City on Thursday in the southern occupied West Bank.

Local and Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that Israeli forces raided the offices of the ministry of interior, the security committee, and the ministry of foreign affairs, and interrogated employees about their jobs.

The Israeli soldiers also took pictures of the offices, according to sources.

At the same time, Israeli forces raided two homes belonging to Abu Omar and al-Batsh al-Husseini in the Old City.

According to locals, the Israeli forces searched their homes and damaged furniture. However, the sources did not mention any detentions.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an she would look into reports on the raids.

Israeli raids in Palestinian towns, villages, and refugee camps are a daily occurrence in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, with a biweekly average of 95 search and detention raids carried out over the course of 2016, according to UN documentation.
