Israel has closed down two offices in East Jerusalem which were allegedly being used by the Palestinian Resistance Movement Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
Israeli police officials said the offices were closed down on Tuesday, claiming that they were “suspected of being used by Hamas and the PFLP,” AFP reported.
One of the offices is in the northern Dahiyat al-Barid neighborhood, while the other is located in the northeastern area of Shuafat.
The offices were ordered closed for one month, according to Israeli officials.
In May, Israeli police closed down another office in East al-Quds, under the pretext that it was being used by Hamas.
The Israeli regime occupied East al-Quds during the Six Day War of 1967.
