NABLUS (Ma'an) -- More than 20 armed Israeli settlers raided a Palestinian school in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank on Thursday, resulting in the injury of two students with rubber-coated steel bullets.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma’an that Israeli settlers from the ultra-right wing Yitzhar settlement raided the school in the Burin village under the protection of the Israeli army as students were taking their final exams.

Daghlas said that clashes erupted in the village as a result of the settler raid, with Israeli forces shooting live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas and stun grenades inside the school grounds, causing more than twenty students to suffer from severe tear-gas inhalation, and injuring two with rubber-coated bullets.

Several students were transferred to hospital for treatment. Israeli settlers also damaged two vehicles and the glass windows of several rooms.
