TULKAREM (Ma’an) -- Israeli forces on Monday shot and injured five Palestinians during a student demonstration near the Palestine Technical University in Tulkarem, medics said.
Clashes erupted near the university, also known as al-Khadouri University, after Israeli military forces fired tear gas canisters and live rounds at students.
Five Palestinians were evacuated to the Thabet Ibn Thabet hospital to be treated for gunshot wounds, while at least 10 others suffered excessive tear gas inhalation.
Students of the Palestine Technical University have organized regular marches since the beginning of October to protest Israeli violations and raids onto the university campus.
Israeli forces routinely suppress the demonstrations, opening fire on the crowds of students and injuring dozens. They have also detained a number of students during and after clashes.
Campus administrators reported that Israeli forces have positioned themselves at a temporary base inside the university's campus, from which they open fire on students during clashes.
