Confrontations broke out on Sunday, between Israeli forces and Palestinian students of Palestine Technical University, in the West Bank district of Hebron, with no injuries reported until the moment, said director of studentsâ€™ affairs department, Issa al-Amla.
Forces reportedly fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters toward the students and the universityâ€™s campus; however, no injuries or arrests were reported by WAFA.
The director said that Israeli forces deliberately provoke students through their almost daily presence at the universityâ€™s entrance; and the searching and interrogating of students, which provokes violence.
