Israeli authorities demolish two classrooms in Jerusalem

2 Classrooms demolished

The Israeli authorities on Sunday morning demolished two Palestinian classrooms in East Jerusalem under the pretext of being built without permit on Israeli-controlled lands.

Eyewitnesses told Anadolu agency that crews from the so-called Civil Administration, accompanied by an Israeli police force, stormed the school of Abu al-Nawwar Bedouin community in East Jerusalem and demolished two classrooms.

The school, which is built of tin, has 60 students from grades 1-4 and it is the only school for children there.

Abu al-Nawwar community is surrounded by three Israeli settlements and it is inhabited by nearly 700 Palestinians who make their living by raising sheep.

Palestinians are prohibited from building in areas classified as C in accordance with the Oslo Accords signed between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1993.

Area C is exclusively controlled by the Israeli government and covers about 60% of the total area of the West Bank.
