Semester Report – Aug to Jan 2017
Based on the data collected during this reporting period CPT reiterates the same fundamental concerns raised in previous school semester reports: In addition to the basic restriction of movement imposed by the military installations, Israeli forces violate other rights of Palestinian children and their teachers on a regular basis, as they walk to and from school. These violations include unwarranted bag and body searches, detention, use of force, school raids and closures, and injuries caused by excessive inhalation of tear gas. The data substantiates extensive anecdotal testimony from Palestinians of all ages and walks of life, which asserts that children and teachers face daily systemic and structural oppression on their way to and from school in H2.
