Israeli forces assault students near Nablus

NABLUS, Israeli forces on Sunday morning assaulted students and prevented them from attending their school in the village of Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya, to the south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, local sources said.

Israeli soldiers stopped students as they were walking to their school, located on the main Nablus-Ramallah Street, and asked to either go back or take some other long road.

Harassment of students and civilians by Israeli forces and settlers is a routine occurrence in the occupied West Bank, especially in areas adjacent to illegal settlements.
