Israeli soldiers 'assault staff' at Bethlehem school

Dec. 10, 2012 4:13 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 11, 2012 4:31 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday assaulted a headmaster and two teachers at a secondary school near Bethlehem, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Three Israeli military jeeps arrived at the school in Tuqu village at midday, and several soldiers assaulted headmaster Salim Abu Mufarrih and teachers Nabil al-Tamamri and Mahmoud Zawahra after they tried to block the soldiers entering into school grounds.

Locals said there were no confrontations or stone-throwing in the area at the time.

An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.
