February 24, 2014

Dozens of school students suffocated on Monday morning during the clashes that broke out at the checkpoint of Shu’fat refugee camp. The Jerusalemite activist, Thaer Fasfoos, said that an Israeli force was stationed at the checkpoint since the early morning. When the students tried to pass through as usual, the forces refused until each one showed them his birth certificate; note that are aged between 12 and 15 years. He added that the forces detained the students and refused to let them go through to their school which led to the breakout of clashes where the forces deliberately fired gas and bomb grenades towards the students which led to the suffocation of many students. The forces also chased some of the students and assaulted and beat them using their batons. Wadi Hilweh Information Center was informed that a 10-year old child was injured with a rubber bullet in his leg.
