Palestinian injured as Israeli settlers attack school in Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A 35-year-old Palestinian was shot and injured, on Thursday, after Israeli settlers stormed a Palestinian high school in Urif village, south of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus, and attacked the students.

According to local sources, more than 50 Israeli settlers stormed a high school full of Palestinian students in Urif village, which led to violent clashes among the settlers and locals.

Sources said that Israeli forces intervened, in order to provide protection to the Israeli settlers, and assaulted students and locals in the clashes.

Sources confirmed that a 35-year-old Palestinian was shot and injured in his thigh by Israeli forces.

The injured Palestinian, whose identity remained unknown, was transferred to a nearby.

His medical condition remained unknown.

The Palestinian Ministry of education released its annual report for 2017 documenting the Israeli government's violations against Palestinian education, saying that 80,279 Palestinian children and 4,929 teachers and staff were "attacked" by Israeli settlers or soldiers.

According to the report, nine students were killed, while 603 students and 55 teachers and school employees sustained live or rubber bullets wounds during Israeli raids into schools or by being run over by Israeli military jeeps, while dozens of students suffered from suffocation due to inhaling tear-gas fired by Israeli forces against them.
