Israeli Forces Demolish Palestinian School in Southern Hebron



Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian primary school late Monday night in the Southern District of Hebron (Al-Khalil) that catered to 42 children.


Israeli soldiers raided the small Bedouin community of Zanouta, and destroyed the school, which was built from cement blocks and tin sheets, according to the locals.

The school was inaugurated on March 26, along with six other schools in the area that were built to provide education for children in vulnerable communities in the area.

The now demolished structures held six classrooms and provided services to 43 school children.

From Zanouta village where Zionist occupation forces demolished its only school and left its 35 girls and boys without a place to study, but it will be rebuilt. Existence is resistance.#BDS#Apartheid#Israel#FreePalestinehttps://t.co/U6DcS7ZuZY

Despite the demolition, the students still showed up to school. Their teachers conducted classes on the floor of the remaining structure.

Adding insult to injury, the Israeli Military Commander seized last night four tents - provided as humanitarian assistance - after the Khirbet Zanuta (South Hebron) primary school structures were likewise seized earlier this month.

According to Israel, Palestinian children should be denied an education by all means. International Law would say this is a grave breach, of the most heinous crimes in the international order.
