AL-KHALIL (HEBRON)  - At 11:00 a.m. in 3 October CPT Office received a call from the Ibrahimi School to say that there were problems at the school and could they please get there quickly. Due to a Jewish Holiday the Mosque checkpoint was closed so the two CPTers had to take a taxi to get to the school. By the time they arrived the incident had finished.

An English teacher told CPT that twelve soldiers stormed into the playground on the pretense that a fat child from their school had thrown an empty bottle at the soldiers. The children were on their break and the soldiers harassed some of the children and said that if they had to they would detain all of the fat children until the child who had thrown the bottle confessed. They also harassed the Head Teacher and the Secretary and informed them that if the same thing happened tomorrow, soldiers would set up a checkpoint on the school's roof.
