Daily struggle of trying to stock the school cafeteria on the other side of an illegal Israeli checkpoint.

As schools start this fall, al-Ibrahimyah school in Hebron is preparing by stocking the school’s cafeteria. The school has more than 300 students so they need to bring a lot of snacks. To do so, they use a shopping cart that needs to pass through the checkpoint since there is no other way to access the school.

Last week, several students and the school principal approached the Israeli military checkpoint with the cart full of snacks. It was not crowded, but the Israeli Border Police told the principal to wait even though the door was open. Then the Israeli Occupation Forces yelled for ten minutes, finally allowing the principal, a student, and the cart to pass through the metal detector, a very tight space, instead of allowing them to use the door with direct access, facilitating the passage of the cart.

Please pray for the Palestinian children as they start school and must pass through these checkpoints daily. Pray for the principals and teachers who accompany their students through these traumatic events, and pray for the families who worry about their children.
