In that statement, he added, “Sadly, earlier this year, he decided to launch another large-scale eviction campaign.” The biggest threat to eviction is the Ras Al-Tin community school in the West Bank. Its co-founders are several member states of the European Union and the EU. Currently, 52 Palestinian schools are under threat of eviction.
