Israeli occupation police units raided on Saturday morning the Issawiyeh Secondary School for Boys in occupied East Jerusalem, detained a student and fired teargas canisters into the school upon leaving it, according to local sources.

They said that police raided the school while the students were arriving to classes as usual and detained a student identified as Saleh Tawil without giving any reason for this action.

Upon leaving the school, the police threw teargas into the school premises causing several suffocation cases among the students and faculty. Some required treatment at the site, said the sources.

Police have been targeting Issawiyeh neighborhood for a while, raiding and detaining residents at all hours of the day and night, attacking students and people and blocking roads into and out of the neighborhood located in the heart of Jerusalem.
