Clashes broke out between members of the Hamas-affiliated Islamic Bloc list and members of the Palestinian Authority’s security services in front of the An-Najah University on Wednesday, according to Palestinian reports.
Footage reportedly from the scene showed PA security forces in civilian clothing and Fatah supporters clashing with members of the Islamic Bloc. The Islamic Bloc had been holding a protest in front of the university after it said a representative of the bloc was assaulted by the university’s security services on Tuesday.
10 employees and students were kicked out of An-Najah University after the clashes. An investigative committee formed by the university will also dismiss anyone found guilty of attempting to tamped with the university’s stability, according to Palestinian media.
