Islamic bloc demands release of students detained by PA

RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- The Islamic bloc of West Bank universities demanded Monday that the Palestinian Authority security services release affiliated students who were detained for their “political affiliation.”

“The PA’s policies prevented many families from the chance to celebrate Ramadan with their kids who are in their jails, especially students from al-Najah and al-Quds universities,” the bloc said in a statement.

Several students who are affiliated to the Islamic bloc were detained by the PA three weeks ago during activities in solidarity with hunger-striking prisoners.
