An armed Jewish settler opened fire on Sunday at a girl school in the village of Tuqu in the occupied West Bank province of Bethlehem, the official Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.

Bassam Jabr, an official of the Bethlehem Education Directorate, told WAFA that an illegal Jewish settler who was armed with a rifle got off a bus loaded with settlers and opened gunfire towards the school, spreading fear among the schoolchildren.

Jabr said that in the aftermath of the attack, hundreds of students were evacuated to a safe haven and therefore classes were canceled.

Violence and vandalism by Israeli settlers are commonplace in the occupied West Bank and are never prosecuted by the occupation authorities.

Attacks by Jewish settlers against Palestinians particularly intensified during the last three months, with the Israeli occupation army turning a blind eye to the violence spree and providing the settlers with protection.

  1. This makes me so incredibly sad. If you keep treating with disdain and brutality? How can you expect them to be ok? The time will come when you all have to get along with each other, treat families with the same kindnes you wish for your own. Children are the same.everywhere .no matter what color or prayers or insolent preconceptions of adults. I hurt in my heart. To see this absolute brutality and rudeness towards an entire people. Just because they ARE.

  2. wait, didn’t israeLIES just condemn Russia for allegedly firing on a school?
    Hypocrisy they name is israel
