Islamic-bloc-deplores-continued-political-arrests-calls-for-actionThe Islamic Bloc, the student wing of Hamas, at an-Najah University has condemned the persistence of the Palestinian Authority (PA) security apparatuses in arresting its members because of their political affiliation.

In a press release, the bloc said that its members’ exposure to repeated arrests and persecution by the PA security forces is considered “a crime and an infringement on freedoms.”

The bloc called on the administration of an-Najah University to necessarily intervene to have all detained students released from PA jails and work on protecting its students against future political arrests.
