Soldiers attack Palestinian students at town east of Jerusalem

Israeli soldiers today attacked with teargas canisters Palestinian students and teachers in the schools’ area in the town of Abu Dis, east of occupied Jerusalem, causing many to suffer from suffocation, according to Hani Halabiya, a local activist.

He told WAFA that Israeli soldiers fired teargas grenades towards the schools’ complex, causing several suffocation cases among students and teachers.

The Palestinian Red Crescent said its staff treated at the location 13 suffocation casualties, while one had to be taken to hospital.

The area in which schools as well as Al-Quds University are located witnesses constant interaction with Israeli soldiers, who often provoke the students and deliberately make pursuing education in that town very difficult.
