Nablus (QNN)- Israeli soldiers prevented Palestinian students from reaching their school in Al-Lubban ash-Sharqiya village, near the city of Nablus, under the pretext of turning the area into a “military zone”.
The head of the village Council, Ya’qoub Oweis, told QNN that Israeli soldiers prevented students from reaching their school located on the main road between Ramallah and Nablus.
He added that the Israelis claimed that the area has become a military zone because some young men had thrown stones at Israeli Jeeps in the area a few days ago, which is why the road to the village’s only high school was closed.
After confronting the Israelis, locals of the village were able to remove the concrete blocks and reopen the road, so that the students could reach their school.
Israeli soldiers routinely try to assault school children, which leads in some cases to arrests and confrontations.
