Daghlas confirmed that one student was injured with rocks thrown by Israeli settlers; he was treated on the spot.

Israeli settlers attacked damaged three vehicles belonging to teachers at the school.

Locals told Ma'an that Israeli military vehicles raided the village at the same time of the attack, which caused clashes to erupt between Israeli soldiers and locals.
