Foreign Ministry condemns Israel's seizure of educational caravans

Oct. 23, 2018 3:46 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 24, 2018 12:13 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates strongly condemned the Israeli forces' dismantling of two educational caravans in Ibziq village, in the northern occupied West Bank district of Tubas, on Tuesday.

Israeli forces dismantled and seized educational caravans belonging to the school of late Marwan Majali, known as "Tahadi 10" school, in Ibziq village, leaving 26 students without a place to learn.

The ministry said in a statement that "Israel's ongoing crimes against the Palestinian Bedouin communities are an integral part of the series of crimes and open war committed by the Israeli authorities in the framework of its plans to achieve the widest ethnic cleansing of Palestinian citizens from area C, under full Israeli military control, with the aim to take over the area for the benefit of settlement expansion."

In its statement, the ministry stressed that this Israeli measure falls in line with the Israeli High Court's decision to demolish the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar, east of Jerusalem, and displace 181 residents, half of whom are children.

The ministry held the Israeli government, headed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, fully and directly responsible for the consequences of these crimes, calling on the United Nations Security Council to promptly activate the international protection system in order to protect the Palestinian people before it is too late.
