Israel bans renovations of Palestinian kindergarten in Hebron

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities banned Hebron’s Rehabilitation Committee from renovating a Palestinian kindergarten near the Ibrahimi mosque, in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, on Sunday.

The committee said that as their employees were carrying out renovation work in the kindergarten, which belongs to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (PRCS), Israeli authorities ordered for its halt.

The committee added that Israeli authorities did not provide a reason for the ban.

Hebron's flash-point Old City has been declared a "closed military zone" by the Israeli army since November 2015, and all non-resident Palestinians have been prevented from entering the area.

Palestinians residing in the Old City were required to register under a number system following the declaration in order to pass through the 17 military checkpoints that crisscross the area.

Around 800 Israeli settlers are living illegally in the area and area able to move freely unlike Palestinian residents.

Despite being located in the center of Hebron city, which is under Palestinian jurisdiction, the Old City is located in an area designated as “H2” and is under full Israeli military control.
