12.03.2006: On 8 February, 2006, the Temporary International Presence in Hebron (TIPH) decided to temporarily withdraw from Hebron after our HQ was attacked and partially destroyed.

TIPH and its member countries are firmly committed to resuming mission operations in the AOR (the city of Hebron) as soon as the security situation permits such a development. For a still uncertain period of time, the TIPH will remain based outside its AOR while closely monitoring developments and status quo in Hebron, aiming at such a return.
