Israeli forces demolished last night a primary school in Zanouta town, to the south of occupied West Bank city of Hebron, just one month after it was inaugurated by the Palestinian Ministry of Education.

Israeli forces demolished Zanouta school near Al-Dahriyeh, in the southern occupied West Bank, and imposed a tight cordon around it.

The school, which comprises six classrooms, was built from cement blocks and metal plates and provides services for 43 students, including ten children in nursery.

The Directorate of Education and Higher Education south of Hebron slammed the arbitrary demolition, saying the school was inaugurated on 25 March along with other schools built to provide education for children in communities endangered by Israeli military measures.

Civil society representatives announced their intent to rebuild the school today.
