Israeli forces raze debris of Palestinian school in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces razed and leveled the debris of a Palestinian elementary school in the al-Simiya village in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron, on Monday.

Israeli forces also took down the al-Tahaddi 13 School sign and sealed off the road leading to the school with dirt mounds.

The school, that is made up of mobile class rooms, was built by the Palestinian Ministry of Education late 2018, at a cost of €40, 000, and was scheduled to open December before being demolished by Israel.

Head of the Directorate of Education in Hebron, Khalid Abu Sharar, said that Israeli military bulldozers raided the school area and carried out the razing and leveled what is left of the school to the ground.

Abu Sharar condemned the assault against the school, pointing out that it would not stop the Ministry of Education from rebuilding the school.

The al-Tahaddi 13 School consists of seven classrooms, and serves 50 students.
