Fida states that Israeli excarvations are to blame for school's collapse, calls on Israeli authorities to halt excarvations around al-Aqsa mosque

According to a statement issued on Monday by the Palestinian Democratic Union, Fida, the collapse of an UNRWA school is a result of the careless and extensive digging and excavations that Israel is conducting beneath occupied East Jerusalem. The floor of the UNRWA school had collapsed on Sunday, injuring 17 young girls in their classroom. Fida has called upon Israeli authorities to freeze the excarvations underneath the al-Aqsa Mosque. The party also called upon Israeli authorities to cease the expansion of settlements in occupied East Jerusalem, arguing that the settlements constructions stood in the way of a solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
