"We will not cooperate with the institute known as Ariel University, which is not located within the bounds of the Israel," Ram said.

AhlulBayt News Agency - Over 1,000 Israeli sociologists have declared their intention not to attend a conference to be held by the university of Ariel in the West Bank because the institution is located outside Israel's boundaries, according to Maariv newspaper on Monday.

Head of the Israeli sociological society Uri Ram told the Israel army radio that members of the society would also sever all academic ties with Ariel University since it is not located in Israeli territory.

"We will not cooperate with the institute known as Ariel University, which is not located within the bounds of the Israel," Ram said.

This was not the first time Israeli academics announced plans to shun the university.

In 2011, 165 Israeli academics had issued a petition in which they vowed not to take part in academic activities at the university because it lies across the Green Line.
