Israeli forces injure dozens, raid university in Abu Dis

Sept. 5, 2018 12:00 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 5, 2018 3:22 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Dozens of Palestinians suffered tear-gas inhalation, on Wednesday morning, during clashes that erupted with Israeli forces surrounding the al-Quds University in the village of Abu Dis, in the central occupied West Bank district of Jerusalem.

Local sources said that Israeli forces raided the Abu Dis village, fired tear-gas bombs and stun grenades towards Palestinians.

Reports confirmed that dozens of Palestinian students at the al-Quds University suffered tear-gas inhalation due to the attack.

Israeli forces sealed off the premises of the university along with the main street leading to it.

Al-Quds University, along with other Palestinian universities, has been subjected to numerous Israeli military raids in the past.

The university was raided several times throughout the years, when Israeli forces destroyed school's property, injured scores of students during clashes, confiscated the school's equipment and documents and even staged a raid during a book fair for students in need, proceeding to destroy and confiscate all of the contents of the fair meant for struggling, low-income students.
