Al-Khader Girls School

Known for its vineyards, olive trees, and figs, al-Khader is often a witness to violence and clashes between its community and the Israeli military. A small village of about 10,000 inhabitants is close to an Israeli bypass road and major checkpoint between the southern West Bank and Jerusalem. Almost every day, there are actions by the Israeli military as they make their presence known. In the small area between the village center and the bypass road, there is a girl’s primary school. As the bells rang in early November 2015 marking the end of classes for the day, three Israeli jeeps broke through the gate and entered the school shooting tear gas into the yard and live bullets at the buildings.
