The Israeli army handed, Sunday, an order halting the construction of a Palestinian school in Masafer Yatta, south of Hebron, in the southern part of the occupied West Bank.

In a statement, the Um Qissa School said on its official Facebook page that the Israeli occupation authorities denied an appeal for permitting the small school, which serves children from the Bedouin community.

Fuad al-Amour, the coordinator of the Protections and Steadfastness Committees, said the orders are the prefix for a demolition order within the coming few days, adding that the order is part of the escalating violations against the Palestinians, their homes, lands, educational facilities, and holy sites.

He denounced Israel’s ongoing destruction of Palestinian infrastructure, schools, educational and health facilities as part of its constant attempts to build and expand its colonies, built in direct violation of International Law.

All of Israel’s colonies in the occupied West Bank, including those in and around occupied East Jerusalem, are illegal under International Law, the Fourth Geneva Convention in addition to various United Nations and Security Council resolutions. They also constitute war crimes under International Law.

Article 49 of the Fourth Geneva Convention states: “The Occupying Power shall not deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.” It also prohibits the “individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportations of protected persons from occupied territory”.
