EU condemns Israel’s demolition of donor-funded school

The European Union denounced today Israel’s demolition of the donor-funded Jibb Al-Deeb School in the small Palestinian village of Bayt Ta’mar, to the east of Bethlehem, saying the demolition violates children’s right to education. ‘Appalled by reports that the EU-funded school in Jibb Al Deeb is being demolished by Israeli authorities right now. 60 Palestinian children are affected,’ said the EU in a statement. The EU urged the Israeli occupation authorities to stop all demolitions and evictions, which it said ‘will only increase the suffering of the Palestinian population and further escalate an already tense environment.’
