School curriculum’s role is to teach kids “Palestine is Haifa and Acre” – the Defense for Children International Palestine’s representative

Defense for Children International Palestine’s Accountability Program Director Ayed Abu Qteish: "The Israeli attack [on our curricula] said that in the Palestinians’ curricula there are [lessons on] Islamic battles that took place- that encourage resistance.
And this is [indeed] the role of the curriculum: The Palestinian children need to know that Palestine is not only Ramallah and Bethlehem. They need to know that Palestine is Haifa and Acre (i.e., Israeli cities) and that there is a historical oppression that is being imposed on the Palestinian children."

The wounded boy in the video is then 13-year-old terrorist Ahmad Manasrah who together with his then 15-year-old cousin Hassan ‎Manasrah stabbed Yossef Ben Shalom (21) in the Pisgat ‎Ze'ev neighborhood in northeastern Jerusalem, and then repeatedly stabbed Naor Ben Ezra (13) who was riding his bike on Oct. 12, 2015. Both victims were seriously injured. Hassan Manasrah was killed while fleeing the scene, and Ahmad Manasrah was shot by Israeli police, arrested, and hospitalized. Ahmad Manasrah is serving 9.5 years in prison for two counts of attempted murder, after his original 12-year sentence was shortened by the Israeli Supreme Court on Aug. 10, 2017, which claimed he had "gone a long way in his rehabilitation."
