The ministry said in a statement that Israel issued school books that resembled official Palestinian school books, but included false information such as Jerusalem being the capital of Israel, adding that the move was an attempt to distort the Palestinian national identity. However, it was unclear if there was a specific Israeli company that was behind the publishing of the books. The ministry warned against using the Israeli-issued copies of the Palestinian school books, while callingĀ on all schools in Jerusalem, teachers, parents, and students to be aware of the falsified school books.
