Sources confirmed that a large number of the students and school staff suffered from tear-gas inhalation and were transferred to Muhammad Ali al-Muhtaseb Hospital for medical treatment.

Palestinian students are regularly harassed by Israeli forces and settlers in Hebron City.

According to the report, nine students were killed, while 603 students and 55 teachers and school employees sustained live or rubber bullets wounds during Israeli raids into schools or by being run over by Israeli military jeeps, while dozens of students suffered from suffocation due to inhaling tear-gas fired by Israeli forces against them.
