Israeli forces seized construction equipment and an agricultural tractor from inside ‘al-Tahadi 17’ school, in the village of Thahr al-Maleh, to the southwest of the city of Jenin, in the north of the occupied West Bank, said a local official.

Omar al-Khatib, head of Thahr al-Maleh village council, told WAFA that Israeli forces, accompanied by staff from the Israeli planning and building committee, stormed the village of Thahr al-Maleh, and raided the school, where a new project for the construction of new health units and a fence for the school were underway.

Forces reportedly seized the tractor and construction equipment, including bricks, sand, cement and twisted wires, from inside the school, to prevent the completion of the project, citing unpermitted construction as a pretext.
