The European Union denounced on Sunday Israel’s demolition of the donor-funded Jubbet Adh Dhib school in the small Palestinian village of Bayt Ta’mar, to the east of Bethlehem, saying the demolition violates children’s right to education.

“Appalled by reports that the EU-funded school in Jibb Al Deeb is being demolished by Israeli authorities right now. 60 Palestinian children are affected,” the EU in a statement.

The EU urged the Israeli occupation authorities to stop all demolitions and evictions, which it said: “will only increase the suffering of the Palestinian population and further escalate an already tense environment.”
