HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian students suffered from tear-gas inhalation, on Monday, after Israeli forces raided several elementary school in the southern occupied West Bank district of Hebron.

According to local sources, Israeli forces repeatedly fired tear-gas bombs towards Palestinian students on their way to the school.

Dozens of students and teachers suffered from severe tear-gas inhalation and were taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.

In addition, school staff told Ma'an that heavily armed Israeli forces raided the school and caused panic among the students, as well as disrupted classes.

The targeted schools were identified as Hebron Boys Elementary School, Khadija Bint Khuwaylid’s Girls Elementary School, Thou Nourain Boys School, al-Hajiriya Girls School, and Tareq Bin Zayed Boys School.

These schools are among nine Palestinian schools located in the H2 area of Hebron, which falls under Israel’s military control and remains at the most risk of attacks. School children have to access military checkpoints in the H2 area to access their schools.

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