Jerusalem24 – Today, Monday, the two schools in the village of Al-Lubban Al-Sharqiya, south of Nablus, were disrupted, after the occupation forces targeted them with tear gas canisters, as clashes erupted between parents and students on the one hand, and the Israeli forces stormed the entrance to the village to protect settlers who performed Talmudic rituals there and prevented students from reaching the two schools.

The Secretary of the Fatah movement in al-Lubban al-Sharqiya, Raja Owais, said that “the occupation forces deliberately fired tear gas canisters at the two schools, which prompted the teaching staff to evacuate them because it was not possible to study in them today. About 400 male and female students had their studies disrupted.”

The confrontations erupted despite the settlers’ withdrawal, which resulted in dozens of civilians, including school students, suffocating as a result of inhaling tear gas.

It is noteworthy that repeated attacks by settlers and the Israeli forces are witnessed in al-Lubban al-Sharqiya, and its students are prevented from reaching their schools.
