The battle for survival between the Palestinians and the occupation continues. Its title this time, is what is faced by “Ras El Tin” primary school which is located in the Bedouin “Ras El Tin” community, east of Ramallah, in the central West Bank. The threat of demolition by the Israeli occupation deprives 50 children of their right to basic education.
“Ras al-Tin” school was built at the beginning of the current school year from bricks covered with tin, and as soon as the occupation found out about it, they notified to stop construction and demolish it, and it now faces the risk of demolition.
“Ras Al-Tin” school is built on the lands of Kufr Malik, Al Mughayyir and Khirbet Abu Falah, east of Ramallah. It includes studies from first to sixth grades, and 50 male and female students learn in it.
These students must be provided with the right to education, which is guaranteed by all local and international laws and legislations.
These students used to travel 7 kilometers a day, to reach their school in Al Mughayyir village, until the school built of bricks and roofed with tin was built.
