Palestinians denounce Israel's demolition of schoolrooms in East Jerusalem

 Israel's demolition of schoolrooms in East Jerusalem
Palestinian National Authority (PNA) denounced Sunday the demolition of two schoolrooms in a Bedouin community in East Jerusalem by Israel.

PNA Jerusalem Affairs Minister and Jerusalem Governor Adnan Al-Hussaini told Xinhua that the "targeting of the local schoolrooms at Abu Nuwwar Bedouin community in Al-Eizariya town is part of Israel's settlement expansion plans."

He added that it "targets the Palestinian existence and unravels the ugly face of the Israeli occupation."

Israeli forces demolished Sunday morning two schoolrooms for the third and fourth graders at the local school. It is the only school, funded by the European Union, to serve 26 children of the 650-member Bedouin community near East Jerusalem.

Palestinian sources said that the Israeli Civil Administration accompanied Israeli forces to demolish the classrooms.

Community representative Dawood Jahalin said the school was given an injunction order in the past to stop its demolition pending a decision from Israel's Supreme Court.
