Israeli soldiers prevented, on Wednesday morning, many Palestinian schoolchildren from reaching their educational facilities, near Nablus, in northern West Bank.

The WAFA Palestinian News Agency said the students, from the al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya village, south of Nablus, were stopped by the soldiers at the main Nablus-Ramallah Road, and were ordered to return to their homes.

The student had to take alternate, longer and unpaved roads, adding three kilometers to their way to school.

It is worth mentioning that this is the fourth time the students are stopped and turned away by the soldiers in the past ten days.
