AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– A number of Palestinian students were injured on Monday when Israeli occupation forces (IOF) brutally stormed an elementary school in the Old City of al-Khalil.
Local sources told a PIC reporter that IOF soldiers surrounded the school and started firing tear gas bombs inside it, which led to breathing problems among the students and their teachers.
The soldiers prevented the access of ambulance crews into the school, the sources added.
The students’ parents were also denied from checking on their children, while the director of the school appealed to human rights institutions to intervene and lift the military siege on the school.
Along the same line, IOF soldiers stormed at dawn Monday Aroub refugee camp to the north of al-Khalil. Tear gas and sound bombs were fired during the raid amid large presence of Israeli troops.
In Nablus, IOF closed on Monday morning all roads leading to Burin village, south of the city, and prevented the residents’ movement.
Military checkpoints were set up at the entrances to the village, the sources added.
Late Sunday, Israeli forces stormed the village and broke into a number of homes. A young man was detained for a short time before being released during the night incursion.
