Going to School in Palestine
Pictured here: The years of frustration and violations committed by the Israeli military lead some children to throw stones at the fortified checkpoints that divide their homes from their schools, as a form of resistance. In response, collective punishment is the common practice used by the Israeli military, shooting tear gas and stun grenades toward the children and into the nearby schools. On this particular morning, two tear gas canisters were shot directly into the yard of a primary school.
As a result, children aged as young as four are subject to teargas and sound grenades when all they want to do is get to school.
