The report added that the occupation state also demolished two schools and issued demolition notices against other schools. 49 schools were subjected to different forms of violations as well.

The total studying hours that were missed due to Israeli violations reached 3071.5. Meanwhile, the Israeli authorities have carried out a vicious campaign against the Palestinian curriculum.
