Israeli settlers, on Wednesday, broke into a school in the village of Beit Ta’mir, east of Bethlehem, and damaged some of its content, said local government sources.

WAFA reported that, according to Hasan Briejeh, representative of the wall and settlements committee, Israeli settlers broke into the Challenge 5 School, breaking a door and tearing a tent inside the school.

He said the families prevented the settlers from inflicting more damage to the school, and chased them away.

The school, which was rebuilt in September 2017, has been named “Challenge 5 School,” because it was the fifth school to be constructed by the ministry in areas threatened by Israeli settlement construction and expansion.
