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.

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
