Please hold Palestinian children who live in the H2 Old City area of al-Khalil/Hebron in your hearts as they pursue their educational hopes and dreams for the new school year that began on August. Many Palestinian children have to pass through intimidating Israeli checkpoints on the way to and from school where they often face delays and Israeli Border Police sometimes search their bags.  In their first week of school many children have also been subjected to the presence of Israeli military vehicles and soldiers who lob sound grenades and tear gas near their schools. Every school morning the CPT Palestine team monitors checkpoints near several schools in the Old City where school children face such frustrating or traumatizing obstacles to receiving an education.
