AL-KHALIL, (PIC)– The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) kidnapped on Tuesday evening two students of Al-Khalil university in the context of its security cooperation with the Palestinian authority.
A force of Israeli troops raided and ransacked the house of student Muhannad Halayka in Al-Khalil before taking him in chain to an unknown destination, his family said.
The family noted that Halayka was detained many times by the Palestinian authority security forces because of his participation in protests against the arbitrary arrest of students.
The IOF also kidnapped student Mohamed Abu Arqoub in an ambush near Deir Samit village southwest of Al-Khalil.
Abu Arqoub is also one of the Al-Khalil university students who participated in the student sit-in that was staged on campus against political arrests.
The IOF kidnapped about 20 students from the Islamic student bloc of Al-Khalil students because of their participation or involvement in student protests against the Palestinian authority.
