Ministry of Education response –
The Ministry of Education strongly condemns the attempt to harm the educator and adds that it is about crossing every red line that has the potential to undermine and endanger the most important space for students, the educational institution.
The ministry calls on the police to turn every stone, in order to reach the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
