Attacks on universities, schools won’t be tolerated: PM
Amman, Prime Minister, Omar Razzaz said incidents that occurred a few days ago at the Al al-Bayt University and Al-Faisaliah School “constitute a violation of the law, jeopardize our society, our values and both institutions.”
The prime minister gave his remarks in the cabinet meeting held Wednesday, where he stressed that the government will not allow such attacks in a rule of law country, and said these actions will not be tolerated.
Al-Razzaz pointed out that the Ministries of Education and Higher Education and Scientific Research will take the necessary actions against anyone who attacked these educational institutions.
Around 20 to 25 employees on Monday stormed the Al al-Bayt University (AABU) president’s office, in protest against renewing President Dia-Eddin Arafeh’s term.
The employees surrounded the president at his office and forced him to leave while shouting “et out, get out,” according to a video that went viral on social media networks.
At the al-Faisaliah school in Madaba, southwest of Amman, social media networks published videos that showed chaos in the school among students, who were throwing barrels inside the building that caused damage to the school’s facilities, in protest against the school’s new principal.
