Students suffocate as Israeli forces attack Hebron school

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian students and teachers suffered from severe tear-gas inhalation, on Tuesday, in Hebron’s elementary school, in the southern occupied West Bank.

According to local sources, Israeli forces stormed the premises of Hebron’s elementary school and heavily fired live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear-gas bombs into the school.

Sources confirmed that a large number of the students and school staff suffered from tear-gas inhalation and were transferred to Muhammad Ali al-Muhtaseb Hospital for medical treatment.

Sources added that the attack disrupted classes, as well as caused panic among the students.

Palestinian students are regularly harassed by Israeli forces and settlers in Hebron City.

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.

According to the report, nine students were killed, while 603 students and 55 teachers and school employees sustained live or rubber bullets wounds during Israeli raids into schools or by being run over by Israeli military jeeps, while dozens of students suffered from suffocation due to inhaling tear-gas fired by Israeli forces against them.
