Update: Israeli forces attack university students‘ march to condemn abduction of council president

 

RAMALLAH, March 12, 2018 (WAFA) – At least eight Palestinians Monday were shot and injured with live ammunition, including one seriously, during clashes that broke out as Israeli forces attacked a students’ march at the northern entrance of al-Bireh city, adjacent to Ramallah.

Clashes reportedly erupted after Israeli soldiers attacked a students’ march, which took off from central Ramallah towards the northern entrance of al-Bireh, to protest Israeli undercover agent’s abduction of the Student Council President Omar al-Kiswani from Birzeit university campus on March 7.  

The injured were transferred to the Palestine Medical Complex in Ramallah for medical treatment. One of the injured sustained a critical injury after being shot in the head.

Birzeit University issued a statement describing what happened and condemning the assault as an attack against an educational institution.
