Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settlement construction in the northern West Bank, said that Israeli forces barged their way into Urief Boys School, where they rounded up two students and evacuated all students from the school.
Israeli forces previously intensively showered the school compound with tear gas bombs, prompting him to evacuate all students from the school.
The school has been the subject of recurrent Israeli forces and settlers’ attacks, which prompted the principal to evacuate the students eight times during the first semester and six times during the second semester of the academic tear 2018/2019.
Attacks on education by Israeli military forces and Israeli settlers in Palestine constitute grave violations of children’s rights to education and development. These attacks are particularly prevalent in the most vulnerable areas of the West Bank – Area C, H2 and Jerusalem.
Such attacks are regular enough to create a constant climate of fear and terror for students and their teachers, generating among them great psychological distress and anxiety and severely reducing levels of educational attainment.
