JERUSALEM: European Union officials are calling on Israel to rebuild the two classrooms which are demolished at an EU-funded school in the West Bank.
The EU’s representative offices in Jerusalem and the West Bank reported a statement on Tuesday expressing “strong concern” about the demolition of the classrooms, built at a Palestinian school near Jerusalem. The school has 26 elementary school students who were then moved to a nearby guesthouse and barbershop to continue with their classes.
The statement stated, “Every child has the right to access to education and states have an obligation to protect, respect and fulfill this right, by ensuring that schools are inviolable safe spaces for children.”
Israel says the school was built without taking a prior permit. But EU officials say such permits are nearly impossible to perceive. Tuesday’s statement urged Israel to halt such demolitions.
