JERUSALEM (Ma’an) – Israeli forces detained the principal of a Palestinian high school in East Jerusalem on Thursday morning, a Palestinian Authority official said.
The director of the Jerusalem office of the Ministry of Education told Ma’an that Israeli troops surrounded the Muslim orphanage high school and prepared to storm the school and detain the principal.
However, principal Alaa Abu Shkheidim went to the forces himself and they detained him at the main gate, the official, Samir Jibreel, said.
Abu Shkheidim was taken to an interrogation center in the Old City.
An Israeli police spokesman did not immediately return calls.
