West Bank, ALRAY - The Israeli occupation army stormed Birzeit University near Ramallah in the central occupied West Bank and detained eight students early Sunday morning.
A large group of Israeli occupation soldiers broke into the university's campus and detained eight students.
During the raid, Israeli occupation forces stormed and ransacked the headquarters of the university’s student council, wreaking havoc on property and students’ belongings.
Birzeit University condemned the IOF raid as a “blatant violation of the international law that protects university campuses and educational institutions.”
It added that its lawyer is now working to learn the condition of the abducted students.
The Israeli occupation is holding around 5,100 Palestinian detainees in inhumane conditions, including more than 1,200 under the so-called administrative detention without charge, according to a Palestinian prisoners’ rights group.
