The parents committee in Jerusalem’s north-eastern occupied town of Al-Issawiya announced today that they won’t let their children out to school starting tomorrow until further notice.

The committee explained that the move comes in protest at the Israeli forces daily raids on the neighbourhood towards the end of school hours.

Local sources reported that the occupation forces have been targeting the town’s schools, throwing sound bombs at the students and causing panic among them.
