Around 300 Palestinian minors who are being held by the Israeli occupation were unable to attend the first day of school yesterday, Safa News Agency reported.
Reporting the Director of the Palestinian Prisoners Centre for Studies, Raafat Hamadaouna, Safa said that some 1.3 million Palestinian students began the new school yesterday, however, a number of children were deprived of that right.
This, he said, contradicts international laws as well as the Geneva Convention.
He called for the local, regional and international bodies and rights groups to work towards ending the suffering of Palestinian children in Israeli jails.
