Palestinian Ministry of Education and Higher Education , Maan News Agency, 13 March 2008

Israeli military forces killed 22 Palestinian students in the last week, 20 of them in the Gaza Strip, the Palestinian Ministry of Education said on Thursday. Ten other students were injured.

In a new report, the Ministry said that “Rafah Martyr Secondary School and Beer Al-Sabeaa Secondary school became a subject of the Israeli atrocities. The Israeli incursion troops used their weapons against the two schools, causing serious damages in school buildings and full windows’ breakages.”

In addition, Israeli curfews prevented students in the West Bank towns of Azzoun, Al-Funduq and Haja to attend their classes.

The Ministry called on the international community to intervene ensure the rights of Palestinian students.
