PA Ministry of Education condemns participation of settlers in wedding of employee’s son as “a blatant violation of all of the national, educational, and administrative norms and values,” establishes “an investigative committee”

Headline: "Fatah made a series of decisions regarding the event in Deir Qaddis"

"In a statement it published yesterday [June 14, 2019], the [PA] Ministry of Education condemned the participation of settlers in the wedding party of the son of an employee at one of our directorates (i.e., local branches of the ministry). The ministry said that this incident is a blatant violation of all of the national, educational, and administrative norms and values, and that it will deal with it firmly out of loyalty to our Martyrs' blood and our prisoners' suffering.

The Ministry of Education emphasized that it hurried to stop the employee's activity and to establish an investigative committee, which has actually begun its activity, out of a commitment to deal with the matter with full transparency. The ministry again emphasized that protecting the national values and loyalty to them are… a central anchor, which was not and will not be up for discussion under any circumstances, and that it will not take lightly any violation of this principle, and will act firmly against any such violation."
