Israel Blocks Hebron Governor from Entering Old City


Truth does not matter for “Israel”. Buttons Do. To mute.

Governor Hamid told PNN that the Israeli army’s procedures were “completely unacceptable” and violated international law and human rights.
The Israeli army started preventing Palestinian teachers and students from reaching the Cordoba girls’ school one week ago. Teachers have resorted to holding classes outside the checkpoint separating the H1 and H2 sectors of Hebron. H2 is controlled entirely by the Israeli army.
“The Israeli forces wanted teachers to pass through the electronic doors,” said Hamid. “This is not part of any agreement and it’s very humiliating and provocative at the same time. The sit-in will still be staged at the checkpoint and we demand [the Israeli army] treat teachers and students in a good manner.”
