In video - Israeli forces attack, injure school children in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces attacked young Palestinian students in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, on Sunday, by firing tear-gas bombs and sound grenades towards them.

According to local sources, Israeli forces physically attacked several students on their way to school, as well as attempted to detain one of them, and fired tear-gas bombs towards parents who attempted to intervene.

Sources confirmed that Israeli forces also fired tear-gas bombs and sound grenades in the vicinity of the Tareq Bin Zayed School, in Hebron City, leading to a number of tear-gas suffocation cases among the students and school staff.

Injured students and staff received first aid on the scene.

Palestinian students are regularly harassed by Israeli forces and settlers in Hebron City.

Meanwhile, Israeli police forces had evacuated students and staff from the Ibrahimi Elementary School, also in Hebron City, shortly after a suspicious body was found at the entrance of the school.

Israeli police forces sealed off the area and safely removed the suspicious body, however, did not identify its origin.

Locals believe that the suspicious body might have been placed at the entrance of the school by Israeli settlers.

Some 800 notoriously aggressive Israeli settlers now live under the protection of the Israeli military in the Old City of Hebron, surrounded by more than 30,000 Palestinians.

The UN documented 111 Israeli attacks on education in the West Bank affecting more than 19,000 children in the last four months of 2018.

The UN documentation identified the Israeli attacks as “Incidents of interference in schools by Israeli forces,” which include “threats of demolition, clashes on the way to school between students and security forces, teachers stopped at checkpoints, and the violent actions of Israeli forces and settlers on some occasions.”

UN officials said, “More than half of the verified incidents involved live ammunition, tear gas and stun grenades fired into or near schools by Israeli forces, impacting the delivery of education or injuring students.”
