Israeli occupation forces yesterday obstructed Palestinian students as they travelled to their school in the Jerusalem neighbourhood of Silwan, Jordan’s Assabeel newspaper reported.

The Palestinian students in Silwan attend a school located to the south of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Israeli occupation forces set up several flying checkpoints along their route.

Wadi Al-Hilwa Information Centre said that the Israeli occupation forces forced the Palestinian students to disembark from their school bus to be inspected.

This, according to the information centre, caused a traffic jam and massive delays to students and workers using the road.
