Studies were cancelled at the Gordan School in Petah Tikva on Friday morning. The decision comes after a mob of parents protested in front of the building because their children were denied registration in the school.

The municipality claimed that the parents resorted to violence in their protest and that police were not responsive to their calls to report to the scene. The police rejected the claim, saying that they held five parents suspected of trespassing for investigations.
