Arab workers banned from Israeli schools

  • Several Israeli cities have denied access to Arab maintenance workers to schools until the end of the school day, the media reported. The measure, which will also be applied to Jews to avoid charges of racial discrimination, has been taken to ensure the safety of schools at a time of escalating violence in the area, Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot said in a report. Cities such as capital Tel Aviv, Rishon Letzion, Hod Hasharon, Rehovot and Givatayim have suspended maintenance work during school hours, EFE reported. Source: IANS
