Israeli Settlers Deny Students Access to School in Hebron

HEBRON, December 10, 2015 (WAFA) – Israeli settlers Thursday verbally assaulted a number of students and teachers and denied them access to their school in Hebron’s Old City neighborhood, according to local sources.


Noura Nassar, a school’s principal, told WAFA an extremist Israeli settler, known as Cohin, verbally assaulted students and attempted to block their access to school, after they passed through an Israeli-controlled checkpoint near the illegal settlement of Beit Hadasa in the city.


Witnesses added that students were horrified by the assault, and were forced to use an alternative unpaved road to reach their school.
