A strike was observed on Saturday, September 2, in the town of Jabal al-Mukaber in occupied Jerusalem in rejection of the oppressive Israeli measures against Palestinian schools.
The Parents’ Committee in Jabal al-Mukaber organized a protest in front of the Sahira Secondary School and the New Sal’ah School to denounce the Israeli decisions targeting these schools.
Participants condemned the policies of the occupation and its violations against Jerusalemite schools, in addition to its ongoing pressure on Palestinians and their children.
The relentless Israeli attempts to alter the Palestinian curriculum, especially in Jerusalem’s schools and the occupied territories, continue, targeting everything Palestinian to expel it from its land and homeland.
It is worth noting that the Knesset’s General Assembly recently approved two bills aimed at increasing oversight of schools and teachers in Jerusalem and the occupied Palestinian territories.
Palestinian observers and experts emphasized the need to protect the Palestinian national curriculum to confront the Judaization of education in Jerusalem.
Mohammed Hamadeh, the spokesman for the Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas in Jerusalem, called for supporting the resilience of Jerusalemites against the “Israelization” plans for education and changing the awareness of generations.
Hamadeh pointed out that the occupation targets the Jerusalemites in education, in addition to its war against Al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy Jerusalem neighborhoods.
