Delegations from Amnesty International and the Church of England visited Palestinian charities in Al-Khalil city that are threatened with closure at the hands of the Israeli occupation authority (IOA).

The popular campaign supporting those charities said in a statement that an AI team and more than 50 clergymen from the Church of England visited the threatened charities and expressed solidarity with them.

The statement said that the local campaigners had sent messages to UNICEF and the AI informing them of the Israeli occupation army"s decision on 26/2/2008 that stipulated the closure and confiscation of all property of the Islamic charitable society and the Muslim youth society, which mainly cater for orphans, without any charge leveled against them.

The messages read, "We ask you to save 7,000 students, 4,000 orphans, 5,000 poor families and 800 employees whose future would be unknown in the event the Israeli occupation army carried out its decision".

The message also pointed out that that the army confiscated foodstuffs, stationery, refrigerators and clothes all belonging to the orphans.

It concluded by asking both institutions to urgently intervene to ward off a serious catastrophe that would befall thousands of orphans and students for no offense committed.
