A post in the “Physicians for Human Rights” facebook group says that a large police force entered the “Beer Kha’il” elementary school in the Bedouin village of Beer Hadaj, fired rubber bullets and tear gas, and arrested students.  A senior physician at Soroka Hospital in Beer Sheva said that a bus filled with at least 20 children arrived at the hospital’s children’s intensive care unit, where they were treated for tear gas inhalation.  According to reports by the “Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality”, those injured during the incident include a pregnant woman, a child with a broken arm, and another with an eye injury.  13 people were arrested during the raid, including several children.
