Israeli Settlers Wreck Palestinian School Threatened with Demolition
Israeli settlers invaded on Monday, 14 August 2023 a Palestinian school in the central-occupied West Bank, breaking windows and vandalizing fixtures and fittings.
Local Palestinian sources reported that dozens of Israeli settlers stormed Ras Al-Tin School to the east of Ramallah which is threatened with demolition by the Israeli occupation and wrecking institutions and fittings.
Ras Al-Tin School is located in a Palestinian Bedouin community on land owned by the Palestinian villages of Kafr Malik, Khirbet Abu Falah, and Al-Mughayer. It was built in 2020 and is part of the Palestinian Tahaddi School Group.
Colonial settlers also stormed the Palestinian School of Tahaddi in the Wadi Al-Siq Bedouin community, smashed its windows, and vandalized its contents, sources added.
In October 2020, the Israeli occupation decided to demolish the school citing that the school is located in an area under full Israeli military control as pretext.
Israeli settlers’ attacks have escalated recently against the Palestinian citizens and their lands including attacking the Palestinian shepherds, preventing them from reaching their lands.
Since the beginning of 2023, Israeli settlers have carried out more than 591 attacks on Palestinians and their own property in the occupied West Bank, 230 of which caused property damage, and 60 of them caused injuries to Palestinian residents, according to Palestinian figures.
More than 650,000 colonial settlers were distributed among 164 illegal settlements and 124 outposts built on the stolen lands of occupied West Bank and Jerusalem.
The West Bank and Jerusalem lands are occupied territories based on International law due to this all Israeli settlement-building activities there are illegal.
