Israeli settlers attack school, injure students in Nablus

Feb. 10, 2019 1:38 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 11, 2019 2:28 P.M.)
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A number of Palestinian students suffered injuries after Israeli settlers raided a Palestinian high school in the Urif village in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, on Sunday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that dozens of Israeli settlers from the illegal Yitzhar settlement raided Urif village and broke into a local high school.

Daghlas added that heavily armed Israeli forces provided protection to the settlers as they raided the high school and later escorted them out of the area.

Daghlas said clashes erupted among Israeli forces and Palestinian students, resulting in 10 students suffering from tear-gas inhalation as soldiers fired tear-gas bombs.

The 10 injured received medical treatment on the scene.

The Urif high school has been repeatedly attacked by Israeli settlers in the past few months.

The Palestinian Ministry of Education released its annual report for 2017 documenting the Israeli government's violations against Palestinian education, saying that 80,279 Palestinian children and 4,929 teachers and staff were "attacked" by Israeli settlers or soldiers.

According to the report, nine students were killed, while 603 students and 55 teachers and school employees sustained live or rubber bullets wounds during Israeli raids into schools or by being run over by Israeli military jeeps, while dozens of students suffered from suffocation due to inhaling tear-gas fired by Israeli forces against them.
