Haifa neighborhood shutters schools amid fears of more violence

Haifa’s municipality says schools and community youth centers in the Halisa neighborhood will be closed on Thursday, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

The city’s Arab community is on edge following a series of revenge killings that claimed six lives on Wednesday, including one in broad daylight in the city.

The decision is intended “to protect the peace and security of children,” says the city, which notes that the Education Ministry and local principles and officials were involved in the process.
