The measures included dismissals from the university for periods ranging from one semester to four, depending on the case.

On Thursday, a different fight broke out at UJ, and university President Nathir Obeidat said that an internal investigation had been launched into the incident.

Videos on social media circulated showing crowds of students throwing punches and flinging heavy objects outside of different university buildings.

University spokesman Muhammad Wasef told Ammon News that the brawls did not result in any injuries.

Obeidat added that the fight was for personal reasons and had no relationship to the university.

“They will all receive the punishment they deserve,” Obeidat said, stressing that the university administration would not be complacent about the incident.
