On Monday 15 December the Israeli Army stormed Burin village, just south of Nablus, and attacked the school children as they were in lessons at Burin Boys High School. They fired volley’s of tear gas and bullets as they stormed the school, searching the bags of the terrified children.
The School principal, Mr. Ibrahim Imran, reported to SFP that this is not the first time this has happened. The Army regularly storm the school, disrupting the learning of the children and leaving indelible psychological damage. He further added that the soldiers have erected daily checkpoints at the western and eastern entrance to Burin, to hinder access to the School, where many nearby villages children attend.
SFP attended Burin offering unwavering support to the students and the village. In August SFP Committee member, Ghassan Najjjar, was arrested by the Army after he protected the School from another invasion. He is still being held in Israeli Prisons.
