Birzeit University has been named as one of the top universities in the world, according to international rankings. Birzeit was ranked in the top 2.7 per cent of universities worldwide, an improvement on last year’s ranking when it was listed among the top three three of higher education institutions... Located north of the West Bank city of Ramallah, the university has faced repeated repression by Israeli occupation forces. In March, undercover Israeli soldiers assaulted and abducted Birzeit student council leader, Omar Al-Kiswani, after they entered the campus pretending to be journalists.
