JERUSALEM, September 27, 2011 (WAFA) – Israeli forces escalated on Tuesday measures against the Khan al-Ahmar elementary school ‘ School of Tires’, in East Jerusalem, by denying entrance of Palestinian cars to school ground and by the decision threatening to demolish the school in two weeks.

In a statement the Palestinian Ministry of Education condemned the Israeli occupation practices against more than 70 Bedouin children in the area and denying them their educational rights, in the simplest levels by issuing demolition notices and raiding the school, day and night, breaking school windows, demolishing part of the school’s fence and confiscating some of the students’ book bags.

The ministry of education calls on the international institutions to interfere to protect the school and the students’ as well to rebuild the destroyed parts of the school.

It condemned the killing of a Palestinian child, 8, when a Jewish settler deliberately ran over him in al-Baqaa area, east of Hebron in the southern West Bank, last Friday. Farid Jaber was severely injured and transferred to Hadassah hospital in Jerusalem where he died.
