State of Palestine: Children battle to save school from Israeli demolition

Children from the Palestinian Jahalin Bedouin community are in a last ditch struggle to save the only school in Khan al Ahmar, which is set to be demolished by the Israeli forces in upcoming weeks, as footage filmed on Monday shows. The Palestinian Authority's Minister of Education Sabri Saidam called the demolition an effort «to remove Palestinian identity.» Students were fearful that every... Еще day could be possibly be their last at Khan al Ahmar. «Every night when we sit together we say it's our last night here in the community, because at any moment the soldiers might come to demolish it,» said one student Leila. On May 24, the Israeli Supreme court ruled that the building should be demolished as it was built without permits in 'Area C'. The 1993 Oslo Accords classify Area C as being under Israeli civil and security control.
