Ministry of Education to transfer work to Khan al-Ahmar

Sept. 14, 2018 3:42 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 14, 2018 3:59 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Education and Higher Education declared, on Thursday, that it will be transferring its work to the Khan al-Ahmar village threatened of demolition, east of Jerusalem in the central occupied West Bank.

The ministry said, in a statement, that each one of its public administrations and directorates would be working from Khan al-Ahmar on a different day.

The statement added that this step comes under the ministry’s efforts to support the resistance of Khan al-Ahmar and defend the village's only school.

The ministry called upon the world and all human rights and international organizations defending the right to education to put an end to Israeli violations that are against international norms and laws.

The statement pointed out that the ministry provided students of the Jordan Valley schools rides to study in Khan al-Ahmar and provided teaching staff to strengthen the village's school and transfer it into a central school.

The ministry had exceptionally started the new school year in Khan al-Ahmar mid-July; that is six weeks earlier than the beginning of the school year at the rest of Palestinian schools.
