The Ministry of Education denounced decisions of some schools in the two districts of Hay Al-Andalus and Al-Zawiya Centre to close their doors in front of students.

"The ministry will not hesitate to take deterrent measures against all those responsible for the closure of schools," the ministry stated on Monday, calling on educational observers in municipalities to carry out their mandated tasks to prevent such "acts of shame", according to the statement.

"Such actions are aimed at pressuring the ministry to retreat from the decisions taken recently, regarding the suspension of education monitors in some municipalities," the ministry added.
