Israeli settlers injure dozens of Palestinian students in Nablus

NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Palestinian students suffered injuries after Israeli settlers raided a Palestinian high school in the Urif village in southern Nablus in the northern occupied West Bank, on Wednesday.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that some 18 heavily armed Israeli settlers from the illegal Yitzhar settlement raided Urif and broke into a local high school.

Daghlas said that Israeli settlers threw rocks at Palestinian students while inside their classrooms, leading to disruption of classes and material damages.

Israeli forces arrived to the high school and provided protection to the settlers while escorting them out of the area.

Israeli forces fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas bombs at students, causing a number of them to suffer from tear-gas inhalation and received medical treatment on the scene.

Daghlas confirmed that due to the attack, classes were dismissed and hundreds of students were forced to evacuate the school's premises.

The Palestinian Ministry of Education released its annual report for 2017 documenting the Israeli government's violations against Palestinian education, saying that 80,279 Palestinian children and 4,929 teachers and staff were "attacked" by Israeli settlers or soldiers.
