Israeli soldiers raided, on Thursday, a high school for boys in the northern West Bank village of Einabous, south of the city of Nablus, claiming they were after a student, prompting confrontations with students and suspension of classes, according to a local official.
Ghassan Daghlas, who is responsible for monitoring Israeli settlement and settler activities in the Nablus area, said soldiers raided Einabous School for Boys to detain a student, provoking the rest of the students who tried to keep the soldiers out of their school.
Violent confrontations broke out and soldiers fired tear gas at the students and inside the school, disrupting classes, he said.
Palestinians have regularly complained that Israeli soldiers violate the Palestinians’ right to education by raiding their schools, detaining students and teachers and harassing students on their way to school or home, according to WAFA.
Eight Palestinians, two of whom are journalists, on Wednesday night, were injured during an Israeli incursion into Nablus city, northern West Bank.
PNN security sources said that Israeli occupation forces stormed the eastern area of Nablus, which led to the outbreak of clashes, wounding 8 people.
Palestinian youth also set fire to an Israeli bulldozer, which ran over a Palestinian man who was participating in the clashes. His condition is still unknown.
Wounds were due to rubber-coated metal bullets and live bullets, mostly in their feet and legs. One sustained an injury in his left eye.
