On Wednesday evening, Israeli soldiers demolished the Tahadi 5 school in the Jeb Ath-Theeb area in l in Beit Ta’mir village, southeast of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank, for the second time this week.
Hasan Breijiyya, the head of the Bethlehem office of the Wall & Colonization Resistance Commission, said many army jeeps and bulldozers invaded the area before surrounding the school and demolishing it for the second time this week and the third time since it was built.
He added that the small school consisted of two tents and a few structures installed after the army demolished its small classrooms that provided basic education to children in the community.
Last Sunday, the soldiers demolished the school before the Commission, and the locals rebuilt it; the small educational facility provides education to six children.
The school provided education to 60 students from the local communities of Jeb Ath-Theeb, Zawahra, Al-Wahsh, and Mheimeed and was built on land private-owned by Palestinians from the Zawahra family, who have all deeds and legal documents.
In late February of 2023, an Israeli court denied an appeal filed by the Wall & Colonization Resistance Commission and The Society of St. Yves – Catholic Center for Human Rights against demolishing the Tahadi School.
The school was demolished eleven times since its establishment in 2016.
