Two friends of CPT Hebron told team members on
13 October 2008 that the Palestinian Authority had replaced the board
of directors of the Islamic Charitable Society (ICS) schools and
orphanages. The friends noted that this move means that
the ICS schools and orphanages will likely continue to operate the
rest of the school year.
The PA is apparently negotiating with the
Israeli military regarding equipment confiscated from the schools and
orphanages. The team’s friends agreed that CPT presence with
the schools and orphanages is not needed at this time.
