Israeli forces opened fire, on Tuesday, with tear gas and rubber-coated steel rounds at Palestinian university students who gathered at a military roadblock at the northern entrance to Ramallah, in the central occupied West Bank, injuring dozens, the Palestinian News & Information Agency (WAFA) reported.
Witnesses stated that dozens of university students demonstrated against the army’s brutal assault on Birzeit University students on Monday.
They added that soldiers responded to the protest by shooting five young men with rubber-coated steel rounds, striking one in the head, and causing dozens more to suffer the toxic effects of tear gas inhalation.
On Monday, undercover Israeli agents along with soldiers, stormed the Birzeit University campus and opened fire with live rounds injuring two, in addition to detaining five, including one who was shot and injured.
The detained students were identified as; Ismael Nakhla (who was shot and injured), Qasam Nakhla, Abdul-Hafeth Sharabati, Mohammad Khatib, and Walid Harazna.
