Caritas Jerusalem deeply concerned by Israeli incursion in the West Bank

Caritas Jerusalem, actively engaged in numerous programs in the Jenin Governorate, has expressed profound concern over Israel’s assault in the occupied West Bank.

“We express deep concern for the safety of our staff in the Jenin Governorate and have, therefore, suspended many of the activities in the area.
