PA ministry condemns Israeli attack on Al-Quds campus

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Ministry of Higher Education on Wednesday strongly condemned an Israeli raid on Al-Quds University campus in Abu Dis in which dozens of students suffered tear gas inhalation and university property was damaged.

The PA ministry denounced the attack as "desecrating the sanctity of the institution, obstructing the educational process," and "intentionally horrifying thousands of students and staff members by utilizing all terrorist means including random heavy firing."

The raid on Wednesday was part of a "continuous and systematic context of violations against the Palestinian institutions in Jerusalem, including the educational institutions and their cadres," a statement added.

These violations aim to challenge the Palestinian presence in occupied East Jerusalem and push Palestinian society towards ignorance and poverty, the ministry said. more
