Islamic bloc students hold a sheet of paper protesting political arrests

TULKAREM, (PIC)– The administration of Fatah-controlled “Palestine technical university-Kadoorie” in Tulkarem city threatened to use force to end the sit-in being held by students from the Islamic bloc inside the campus.

The students have staged their sit-in to protest the political arrests launched against them by the Palestinian authority security forces especially during the exam seasons.

A spokesman for the Islamic student bloc told a reporter for the Palestinian information center (PIC) that dozens of the university guards were deployed across the campus after dean of student affairs Munder Nasrallah instructed them to evacuate them by all means.

The spokesman affirmed the protesting students refuse the evacuation orders and have the right to continue their sit-in to defend their safety and academic future.

He noted that the dean told them that the governor of Tulkarem who had pledged in a meeting with them to end the campaign of political arrests against them backtracked from his pledge.

There are premeditated intents to give up the students to the PA security forces, the spokesman added.

Some kind of tension is still raging on campus between the students and the guards, and one student from the bloc was reportedly transferred to hospital after he fainted.
