Israeli forces demolished a Palestinian primary school late Monday night in the Southern District of Hebron (Al-Khalil) that catered to 42 children.
Israeli soldiers raided the small Bedouin community of Zanouta, and destroyed the school, which was built from cement blocks and tin sheets, according to the locals.

The school was inaugurated on March 26, along with six other schools in the area that were built to provide education for children in vulnerable communities in the area.
The now demolished structures held six classrooms and provided services to 43 school children.
From Zanouta village where Zionist occupation forces demolished its only school and left its 35 girls and boys without a place to study, but it will be rebuilt. Existence is resistance.#BDS #Apartheid #Israel #FreePalestine https://t.co/U6DcS7ZuZY

Despite the demolition, the students still showed up to school. Their teachers conducted classes on the floor of the remaining structure.
