Another favorite punitive measure was the harassment and occupation of Palestinian educational institutions by British troops. In this photograph British troops are encamped on the grounds of the Arab College, Jerusalem, summer 1938 (see 226-227, 239-240). Since 1967 the Israeli authorities have resorted to similar tactics in the Occupied Territories, citing as justification their earlier use by the British against the Palestinians.
