Absurd! Israeli Occupation Forces Arrest Palestinian Student For Possession Of Geometric Compass


PNN/ Hebron

This morning, Israeli forces arrested Ihab Maher Abu Rmeileh, a seventh grader on his way to Al-Ibrahimia school inside the old city of Hebron; and was charged of having a geometric compass inside his schoolbag.

According to the D.G of Field Follow-up in the Ministry, an Israeli force attacked the school child Abu Rmeileh, and dragged him to a military point inside the town after being severely beaten by a group of settlers.

In a related context, a number of settlers attacked two students from the same school Nizar Ghalma (eighth grade) and Ahmed Rajaby (seventh grade), and then the Israeli forces arrested the students and took them to a military point there. These incidents come after a visit to this school by a group of international figures including, the Humanitarian Coordinator for the Occupied Palestinian Territory Mr. James W. Rawley, together with diplomats from five countries and the European Union, as well as representatives from Save the Children and UNICEF.

The Ministry of Education & Higher Education appeals to all local and international human rights organizations and mainstream media to intervene and protect the rights of defenseless Palestinian children, stressing that the IO harassments and child detention constitute a serious violation of children’s rights to access a safe learning environment.
