Birzeit University mourns students murdered by Israeli occupation

Birzeit University mourns the death of the dear students Thafer and Jawad Abdul Rahman Rimawi who were murdered by the Israeli occupation this morning in Kufr Ein, Ramallah. 

Birzeit University is preparing for an emotionally-charged funeral on campus at 12:00 to bid the martyrs farewell. The university lowered the flags, declared three days of official mourning and suspended the classes for the day to allow for a mass participation in the funeral.

Birzeit University will not be deterred by the ongoing Israeli assaults and will continue its academic and national role despite the challenges. The university stresses that Palestinians will not be discouraged and will continue their resistance until they obtain their legitimate rights.

Birzeit University calls on the international community and human rights organizations to take the immediate measures to stop the absurd Israeli attacks that violate human and education rights in Palestine.
