IMEMC & Agencies: Palestinian medical sources reported that seven Palestinian children have been injured by gas bombs and concussion grenades fired by Israel soldiers at elementary schoolchildren in At-Tour town, in occupied East Jerusalem.

The sources said that the seven children were injured by fragments of gas bombs, and concussion grenades, and that all of the wounded are 10-13 years old.
Dozens of students hurled stones at the army after attacking them leading to further clashes, local sources reported.

Furthermore, the army kidnapped one resident, identified as Mustafa Abu Al-Hawa, 20, and took him to an unknown destination.

Hatem Khweiss, media spokesperson of the Parents Committee of Jerusalem Schools, stated that the union will call for a strike and a press conference on Monday to expose the ongoing violations carried out by the soldiers against the Arab students in occupied Jerusalem.

He added that these violations require a serious action to stop them, and called on the international community to intervene and stop the ongoing Israeli violations against the Palestinians, their lands and property in Jerusalem.
