Israeli forces yesterday attacked several Palestinian schools in the occupied West Bank’s southern city of Hebron.

Quds Press reported that the occupation forces stormed a Palestinian school in the south of Hebron and began firing tear gas and sound bombs. The army was targeting teachers and students, according to the agency.

The London-based agency quoted local sources as saying that 15 Palestinian students at the city’s primary school suffered suffocation as a result of the attack.

The sources added that the Israeli forces also fired tear gas at Hebron’s Ziad Jaber School after threatening to place it under siege and storm it.

Teachers suspended classes at the Khadija School, sending students home for fear of possible attacks by occupation forces, locals said.

In preparation for the Jewish holiday season, Israel announced the closure of the Ibrahimi Mosque and the security barrier of the Old City of Hebron from this evening until Sunday morning.

    Gee I wonder why Israel had to do this….

    When will these savages who call themselves “palestinians” figure it out that if they do not attack they will not be targeted.
    Search the schools and that mosque no doubt you will find weapons.

      I cannot find the ” attack[s] ” you mentioned in the article , where is this mentioned ? Or is this imaginary ?

      And the the reason the Ashkenazi is still in Palestine? Is he Middle Eastern?

    • Maybe they should have searched the school after demanding a mass evacuation though, not use gas against the students.
