By triji May 1, 2024

The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), which was the location where riot police were deployed, was the scene of a fight that broke out. Demonstrators who supported the Palestinian cause were besieged inside a building at Columbia University in New York City on Tuesday evening. The police were able to extract them.

On Wednesday, confrontations broke out on the sidelines of a pro-Palestinian march that was taking place on the campus of UCLA University in Los Angeles, according to photographs that were carried by American television. This occurred after the Columbia incident that took place on Tuesday. Zach Seidl, a spokeswoman for the city of Los Angeles, stated on X that the Los Angeles Police Department “immediately responded to the call for help on campus.”

According to the clip, protestors and counter-protesters engaged in violent confrontations with sticks, flung objects at each other, and fired fireworks at each other on multiple occasions. According to CNN, the riots that started just before dawn pitted pro-Israeli factions against pro-Palestinian groups.

Location of the campus

During the past two weeks, numerous university administrators across the nation have been confronted by protesters, sometimes numbering as few as a few dozen, who have invaded their campuses in order to voice their opposition to Israel’s assault in Gaza against Hamas. As a result, pro-Palestinian students set up a camp in the middle of the UCLA campus, on a grass that was ringed by barricades.

Before these incidents, Gene D. Block, the Chancellor of UCLA, had issued a warning about the presence of people from outside the university among the pro-Palestinian activists who were occupying the campus.

Harassment and insults also

As early as Sunday, pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli activists, who were backed by a large number of demonstrators from outside the university, came to blows with one other, pushing and insulting each other repeatedly.

“A significant number of demonstrators and counter-protesters engage in their activism in a nonviolent manner. But there are some who employ practices that are, to put it bluntly, disgusting and shameful,” he stated in a message that was published on the website of the institution on Tuesday. Several incidents of violence have been witnessed by us. In particular, these instances have caused our Jewish students to experience a profound sense of concern and fear,” he went on to say.

Intervening manually with the military

On Tuesday evening, New York police intervened militarily in the hub of pro-Palestinian mobilization on American campuses by dislodging pro-Palestinian activists who had barricaded themselves inside a building at Columbia University.

Around three o’clock in the morning, local time, on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the New York Police Department informed the New York Times that the operation had been completed, stating that “there is no one left in the building” and that the camp is now empty. After around two hours, a journalist from AFP was able to observe that the campsite had been cleaned up. According to the journalist, all of the tents had been hauled down by the staff of the institution, and the remaining goods were dumped into enormous black trash bags.

The American media, for their part, were of the opinion that all of the protesters had been removed from the school.تعمل-هذه-الكبسولة-على-علاج-ارتفاع-ضغط-الدم-morocco.html—%D8%AA%D8%B9%D9%85%D9%84-%D9%87%D8%B0%D9%87-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%83%D8%A8%D8%B3%D9%88%D9%84%D8%A9-%D8%B9%D9%84%D9%89-%D8%B9%D9%84%D8%A7%D8%AC-%D8%A7/10650342
