On Sunday, Israeli soldiers surrounded a school in Tuqu’ town, southeast of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, and fired many gas bombs, causing many schoolchildren to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
Bassam Jabr, the director of the Education Department in Bethlehem, said several army jeeps invaded the town and surrounded the Tuqu’ Highschool for Boys.
He added that the soldiers fired many gas bombs and concussion grenades, causing many schoolchildren to suffer the effects of tear gas inhalation.
On Saturday, thousands of Palestinians participated in the funeral ceremony and procession of a child, Mustafa Amer Sabah, 15, whom Israeli soldiers killed in Tuqu on Friday.
The Israeli army frequently invades the town, especially the school area, and installs roadblocks, chasing and interrogating the students, leading to protests.
