CAIRO, (PIC)-- The Egyptian security authorities are detaining 150 Palestinian students in their jails all of them from the Gaza Strip despite studying in Egyptian universities, students residing in Cairo said.
They added in a press statement on Tuesday that the campaign of arrests started five months ago and was still ongoing, noting that the detained students are held in different jails.
The sources underlined that the students are subjected to "cruel interrogation" at the hands of the Egyptian state security agents without any charges being leveled against them and without appearing in courts.
They pointed out that the campaign started with detaining then deporting those students to Gaza, which ruined their academic future, but now they are detained and held in jails without trial.
