AL-KHALIL (HEBRON): Soldiers enter playground at Ibrahimi School

At 11:00 a.m. in 3
October CPT Office received a call from the Ibrahimi
School to say that there were
problems at the school and could they please get there quickly. Due to a Jewish
Holiday the Mosque checkpoint was closed so the two CPTers had to take a taxi
to get to the school. By the time they arrived the incident had finished.

An English teacher told CPT that twelve soldiers stormed
into the playground on the pretense that a fat child from their school had
thrown an empty bottle at the soldiers. The children were on their break and
the soldiers harassed some of the children and said that if they had to they
would detain all of the fat children until the child who had thrown the bottle
confessed. They also harassed the Head Teacher and the Secretary and informed
them that if the same thing happened tomorrow, soldiers would set up a
checkpoint on the school’s roof.

Privilege of movement

Basic freedom of movement in Palestine—walking to the grocery store, driving to visit family, or flying internationally—depends on your nationality, race, and religion. As a Palestinian, you are denied these rights as others in your country move freely.
