Israeli Forces Close Main Entrance of School, Trap Students in Hebron

HEBRON, December 28, 2011 (WAFA) – Israeli forces Wednesday closed the main entrance of Susiya School, east of Yatta in the northern West Bank city of Hebron, trapping the teachers and students inside the school, according to an activist.

Ratib al-Jabour, coordinator of the popular committee against the Wall and settlements in East Hebron, told WAFA that Israeli bulldozers, accompanied by soldiers and officers in the civil administration, closed the main entrance of the school with piles of dirt, trapping students, teachers and their vehicles inside.

To be noted, the Israeli civil administration stormed Susiya school about a month ago and handed its principal notices to demolish the school, a water well and three greenhouses near the school.

Susiya school, which is built of brick and tin, has 36 students, seven teachers and the principal.

Israeli authorities demolished the school a year ago.
