SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Israeli forces early Wednesday fired tear gas at a university campus in the central West Bank, administrators said.

Officials at the Salfit branch of al-Quds Open University told Ma'an that Israeli soldiers raided the campus and showered students with tear gas.

"Campus workers collected some 70 empty tear gas canisters," the officials said, adding that the gas prevented students from attending classes.

"The Israeli occupation's procedures targeting students and faculty of al-Quds Open University will never discourage the university from moving forward as planned," the administrators added.

An Israeli military spokeswoman said she was not familiar with the incident.

The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Higher Education condemned a similar raid on Jan. 22, when Israeli forces fired tear gas at students on the campus of al-Quds University in Abu Dis and damaged university property.

The ministry said at the time that the raid was part of a "continuous and systematic context of violations against the Palestinian institutions ... including the educational institutions and their cadres."

The internationally recognized Palestinian territories of which the West Bank and East Jerusalem form a part have been occupied by the Israeli military since 1967.

Resist! Resist! Resist! The racist paranoia of Zionist-led Israel is so deja vu of the Nazi fear & jealousy of Euro Jews academic,cultural &educational standards,&wealth,as tho' it posed a threat(in Nazi sociopathic mindset it did).The Palestinian people have always been a highly educated,cultured,skilled,artistic &proud people.But,knowledge is power,advancement & Israel wants none of that in non-Jews hands! Kudos to Palestine! Never give in!Keep resisting,as is your RIGHT,in your HOMELAND!

Israel is doing its best to to vitiate higher learning; in occupied Palestiine they use tear gas against a university (not the 1st time) and, throughout the West, the hasbara gauleiters are doing their best to deprive even the most venerable universities of freedom to speak and teach. Yet demolitions continue in order to allow yeshivas to replace houses and shops in Palestine. What horrible irony: learning for "falangists" but not for anyone who dares to be critical of Zionism.
