Israeli soldiers attack schoolchildren in Al-Khalil

[ PIC 22/09/2013 – 07:11 PM ]


AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– Violent confrontations were reported in the Old City of Al-Khalil after Israeli occupation forces (IOF) fired teargas at schoolchildren while on their way home from school at noon Sunday.

Eyewitnesses told the PIC reporter that schoolchildren threw stones and empty bottles at the soldiers who responded by firing teargas at them. They added that a number of citizens suffered breathing problems as a result of the attack especially the elderly people and some of them were taken to the government hospital in the city.

The witnesses said that IOF soldiers arrested four kids for taking part in throwing stones but women in the suburb succeeded in freeing them. They added, however, that two others were arrested and taken to an army barracks near the Ibrahimi mosque.

Meanwhile, other IOF soldiers closed the southern entrance to Al-Khalil city and the main entrance to Fawar refugee camp.

The soldiers also broke into the home of Salem Al-Salayma in Al-Khalil and forced him and his entire family out of it this afternoon.

Salayma told the PIC reporter that the soldiers ordered him, his wife, and children out of the home and blocked them from approaching it. He said that the soldiers occupied the rooftop of his home and a nearby mosque, noting that they were near to the Kiryat Arba settlement.

Recalling that it was not the first time, Salayma said that such “arbitrary measures target forcing us to abandon our home due to its proximity to Kiryat Arba settlement”.
