Israeli forces storm Al-Quds University campus, sabotage and seize exhibits
RAMALLAH,� An Israeli military force stormed in a predawn raid Al-Quds University campus in the town of Abu Dis, east of Jerusalem, and sabotaged and seized exhibits, the Palestinian Ministry of Education said on Saturday.
Troops broke down doors to an exhibition held at the Faculty of Medicine, sabotaging and seizing all exhibits, documents and electronic equipment, it said.
This came just two days after troops raided the Palestine Technical University (Kadoori) campus in the northern West Bank city of Tulkarem, seizing electronic materials and recordings of surveillance cameras.
In a press statement, the Education Ministry said Israeli troops broke into the administration building and other offices inside the Abu Dis campus of Al-Quds University, located right behind the concrete wall Israel built to separate East Jerusalem from its environs, and tampered with their contents.
It called upon all local and international human rights organizations to expose Israeli violations against Palestinian universities and ensure Palestinian students receive education in a safe environment.
The exhibition was sponsored by the Islamic Bloc at the university.
