Abstract: On 13 August Birzeit University reopened after a four-month military- ordered closure. On 27 October al-Najah University reopened after a six-week closure ordered by its administration and the board of trustees in the wake of the conflict between the nationalist student council and Islamic Bloc students. The closure of Bethlehem University (triggered by Israeli soldiers' fatal shooting of a student on 28 October) and Birzeit on the one hand and al-Najah's closure for internal reasons on the other illustrate the external pressures and internal conflicts currently plaguing universities in the occupied territories
