After Israeli forces demolished their school building, Palestinian students and teachers set up a makeshift school

Palestinian students and teachers started the new academic year on the rubble of their West Bank school which had been destroyed by Israeli occupation forces one and half months ago.

Safa news agency reported that the Khelat Al-Daebe school in occupied Hebron reopened yesterday but classes were held on the rubble of the former building.

Students sat on tyres which had been set up to form classrooms.

Representative of the Anti-Settlement Committee in the West Bank Rateb Jabour told Safa that the Palestinian students and teachers insisted on starting the new school years on time.

He noted that the Israeli occupation confiscated the school’s furniture, including caravans used as temporary classrooms.

Some 1.3 million Palestinian students began the new academic year in the occupied territories yesterday.
