Ma’an – 18/03/2015

NABLUS – A Palestinian family has accused Israeli forces of stealing money and jewelry from their family home near Nablus during a military raid Sunday.

Family members of Wisdam Nassar from the village of Madama south of Nablus told Ma’an they realized Tuesday that 5,000 shekels ($1,200) and jewelry worth 12,000 shekels ($3,000) were gone after Israeli forces raided the home.

Israeli forces raided the village at 2 a.m. early Sunday and ransacked several homes for inspection, according to the family.

The family said they had notified the Palestinian security services of the robbery.

An Israeli army spokeswoman told Ma’an she was not aware of any theft that might have occurred and would look into the incident.

Israeli forces confiscated an estimated $2.9 million worth of cash and property from Palestinian homes, charities, and businesses during Operation Brother’s Keeper in the summer of 2014, according to a report by Geneva-based human rights organization Euro-Mid Observer.

The operation involved a three-week campaign of mass arrests throughout the occupied West Bank by Israeli forces, allegedly searching for those responsible for the deaths of three Israeli teenagers killed while hitchhiking in a Jewish settlement near Bethlehem.

Spokespople for the Israeli government justified confiscations during this time by claiming their planned use to fund or support terrorism.

The Euro-Mid Observer reported, however, that Israeli authorities neither provided evidence nor judicial permission for the confiscations.
