January 22, 1987

Israeli occupation authorities reopened An Najah University on the occupied West Bank for the first time in more than two weeks after warning that they will no longer tolerate political unrest on campus. Authorities said there were no disturbances when the 3,000-student facility near Nablus reopened. Military officials shut it 17 days ago, saying students were planning anti-Israeli demonstrations. Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin lifted the closing order two days earlier than expected after visiting Nablus to meet with the heads of five West Bank universities.
