The sources said that scores of students have been treated for the effects of tear gas inhalation, while others were shot with rubber-coated metal bullets.

Hani Halabiyya, spokesperson of the Popular Committee against the Wall and Settlements in Abu Dis, stated that clashes took place between dozens of students and soldiers after the army invaded the university campus to close a gap in a section of the Annexation Wall, in the area.

Halabiyya said that soldiers fired bas bombs, concussion grenades, firebombs and rubber-coated metal bullets.

Some of the wounded students received treatment by local medics, while others were moved to a local clinic.

The Israeli invasion led to property damage in a number of buildings belonging to the university. The army also surrounded the campus, blocking Palestinian traffic.
