Foreign ministry condemns Israeli army storming of Birzeit University, attack on students

RAMALLAH, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates condemned the Israeli forces’ storming of Birzeit University campus and attack on students.

The ministry considered, in a statement today, this attack as an integral part of the occupation’s aggression and its continuous war against the Palestinian people, their rights, land, holy sites, properties, and institutions, and a flagrant violation of international norms and laws that criminalize such incursions.

It called on the international community and relevant UN institutions, particularly UNESCO, to condemn this intrusion and the attacks and harassment against Palestinian educational institutions, and to take the necessary measures imposed by international law to provide protection to the Palestinian people and their educational institutions.
