Israeli extremist settlers attacked on Wednesday morning, December 7, a Palestinian school, south of the occupied West Bank city of Nablus, forcing the students to leave.

Ghassan Daghlas, an official who monitors the settlement activities in the northern occupied West Bank, reported that groups of Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar attacked with stones the Madma female school under the protection of Israeli occupation forces.

Activist Daghlas pointed out that Palestinian people in the area tried to confront the settlers’ attacks but the Israeli occupation forces fired them with tear gas canisters.

Under the settlers’ attacks, the school administration was forced to evacuate the school from its students for their safety.

Israeli settlers from the illegal Yitzhar settlement built on the Palestinian lands of Nablus, regularly attack Palestinian homes, lands, schools, vehicles, and properties.
