Al-Quds (Jerusalem), 25 Rabi’ul Awwal 1436/16 January 2015 (MINA) – Approximately ten Israeli settlers stormed Wednesday a secondary school in Tur neighborhood in occupied Jerusalem and fired tear gas and sound bombs into it under Israeli occupation police protection.
Head of the follow-up committee in Tur neighborhood Mufid Abu Ghannam confirmed that ten Jewish settlers stormed the school Wednesday afternoon while the students were leaving their classes, The Palestinian Information Center (PIC) quoted by Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) as reporting.
The students panicked at the attack and started shouting and screaming, forcing the settlers and soldiers to withdraw from the school amid heavy fire of tear gas bombs.
Israeli forces, in their turn, fired heavy volleys of live bullets into the air to scare the students, he added.
Beit Orot settlers have twice tried to break into the school on previous days; however the local residents confronted them and forced them to withdraw, Abu Ghannam pointed out.
Meanwhile, Israeli forces stormed under heavy tear gas bombs the nearby girls’ elementary school under the pretext of looking for a wanted person.(T/P008/P3)
