Israeli Military Demolish Palestinian Primary School Near Hebron

HeadlineNov 29, 2022

In news from the occupied West Bank, Israeli military forces have demolished a Palestinian primary school south of Hebron. Video posted online shows young Palestinian students in tears as they had to leave their classroom before a bulldozer destroyed their school in Masafer Yatta. The Israeli human rights group B’Tselem condemned the school demolition, saying, “This is part of a state effort to drive Palestinians out of the area by making their lives unbearable. Expelling residents is a war crime.” The European Union also condemned the school demolition.
