The Palestinian Prisoner Society (PPS) today condemned the Israeli army’s detention of dozens of Palestinian students of Birzeit University following a solidarity visit to the Shalabi family whose home was demolished by the army last week.

Israeli soldiers stopped 45 students following their solidarity visit yesterday to the Shalabi family in Turmous Ayya village, north of Ramallah, and detained them for several hours before allowing the females students to leave while holding the remaining 33 male students who will be brought before a military court today.

The PPS said the army targeting of Palestinian students, particularly those at Birzeit University, is an attempt to undermine their leadership role, and their right to participate in and to defend their just causes.

Israeli occupation authorities have intensified their measures against Birzeit University students and detained dozens of students, disrupting their pursuit of higher education, which is a violation of their right to education.

  1. Never does a single day go by in the occupied Palestinian homeland without Jewish supremacist terrorists creating as much terror as possible against the indigenous Palestinians.

    Even the evil Nazis would’ve been flabbergasted by the horrifying evils that have taken place against the Palestinians over the past 73 years.
