The new semester of 2021 started in-person, which means that school students in H2 are once again walking to school by crossing the Israeli military checkpoints.

Since the beginning of this new semester, there has been an increase of violence by the Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) against children when they cross the checkpoints. Soldiers have increased their use of tear gas and stun grenades during the morning and the afternoon periods when children are starting and finishing class.

CPT members have been present on the ground and have witnessed the increased violence. This Urgent Incidents report contains all incidents documented by CPT from 16 August – 19 September 2021.
