BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces on Monday assaulted a headmaster and two teachers at a secondary school near Bethlehem, a Ma'an correspondent said.
Three Israeli military jeeps arrived at the school in Tuqu village at midday, and several soldiers assaulted headmaster Salim Abu Mufarrih and teachers Nabil al-Tamamri and Mahmoud Zawahra after they tried to block the soldiers entering into school grounds.
Locals said there were no confrontations or stone-throwing in the area at the time.
An Israeli army spokeswoman said she was looking into the incident.
