ISRAEL: Schooling was disrupted for 23,000 Palestinian pupils in 60 schools in the first three months of the current intifada (uprising) against Israel, says a new report. Tens of schools were damaged and 2.4 million new textbooks could not be distributed because of curbs on movements of people and goods imposed by the Israelis after the uprising began last October.
