In video - Israeli forces hold students, teachers at Hebron checkpoint

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces prevented Palestinian students and teachers from entering Qurtuba elementary mixed school, in the southern occupied West Bank city of Hebron, on Tuesday.

Local sources said Israeli forces prevented students and teachers from entering their school in the center of Hebron City, after demanding to take their pictures before crossing the al-Shuhada Street checkpoint.

Israeli forces reportedly demanded to photograph each student and teacher upon their arrival to the school and before they cross the checkpoint.

Sources pointed out that students and teachers refused to be photographed and humiliated, which led to Israeli forces holding them at the checkpoint for over an hour, before allowing them to cross through.

During the past week, Israeli forces had also assaulted dozens of Palestinian school students and the principal of the same school.

Palestinian residents of the Old City of Hebron face a large Israeli military presence on a daily basis, with at least 32 permanent and partial checkpoints set up at the entrances of many streets.

Additionally, Palestinians are not allowed to drive on al-Shuhada street, have had their homes and shops on the street welded shut, and in some areas of the Old City, are not permitted to walk on certain roads.

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers move freely on the street, drive cars, and carry machine guns.
