Palestinian schoolchildren scuffled with Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint in the West Bank city of Hebron on Tuesday morning before soldiers fired tear gas and dispersed the crowd, witnesses said. The students, upset that Israeli soldiers searched bags and made students lift their shirts before passing through the checkpoint on their way to school, refused to cooperate. They said troops raised their rifles to ward off the throng of students. No shots were fired and no one was injured. Soldiers scuffled with a few female students who confronted them, but the group scattered when soldiers fired tear gas into the crowd and arrested two students, the witnesses said. The rest of the students went home as part of a strike protesting the security checks. The Israeli military had no comment on the incident.
