20/02/14: Burin boys school attacked by the Army for the second day running

For the second day running, at approximately 11:00am when students were in classes, the Israeli Army attempted to attack Burin Boys High School. The Army fired volleys of tear gas and stun grenades at students, who left their studies to defend their school against the attack. The Army were accompanied by settlers from the illegal settlement of Yitzhar.

Yesterday at the same time the Army attacked the school. The Army use the excuse that they allege students threw stones at the criminal settlers, despite the fact all the students were in classes.

The attempted intimidation of villagers has been increasing in recent weeks and days with daily Army day and night raids. The Army has been systematically arresting young boys in attempt to terrorise and break the will of villagers.

Burin is surrounded by the illegal settlements of Bracha and Yitzhar, which house some of the most extreme terrorists. Last year alone 1423 olive trees were damaged by the settlers and numerous attacks in villagers and their property. The settlers are protected and supported by the Army who cooperate in the acts of terrorism.

SFP implores all people of good conscience around the world to abide by the Palestinian request for a boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) of Apartheid Israel, to hold it to account for its war crimes, in the absence of action by international governments.
