Israeli forces clash with students during raid into Abu Dis

JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinian students at Al-Quds University in Abu Dis suffered tear gas in clashes that broke out when Israeli forces raided the town on Monday, locals said.

A local popular committee spokesperson, Hani Halabiya, told Ma'an that three Israeli military vehicles raided Abu Dis and deployed near the separation wall, firing tear gas canisters and rubber-coated steel bullets at students.

Classes were suspended as clashes erupted.

A bulldozer reportedly arrived in the area to repair damage to the separation wall caused by Palestinian youths during protests last week.

Through October, there have been regular clashes outside Al-Quds University. A number of Palestinians who allegedly carried out stabbing attacks on Israelis were students there.

These include 19-year-old law student Mohannad Shafiq Halabi, who was shot dead at the beginning of the month after he stabbed to death two Israelis in Jerusalem's Old City -- an act that served to trigger much of the subsequent unrest across the occupied Palestinian territory.

Several days before the attack, Israeli media reported that Halabi posted a photograph on Facebook of Diya Talahmeh, another Palestinian studying at al-Quds University who died in unclear circumstances during an encounter with Israeli forces in the West Bank village of Khursa in September.
