Violence erupts at clashing pro-Israel and pro-Palestine demonstrations on UCLA campus

Dueling demonstrations at UCLA between pro-Palestinian and pro-Israel groups became physical when demonstrators breached the barrier separating the two sides, resulting in fights. The groups included pro-Palestinian protesters and a counterdemonstration by the United Jewish Coalition. The event was meant to show support for Jewish students and educate others. Pro-Palestinian encampments at UCLA have been calling for a cease-fire in Gaza. Prior to this incident, UCLA had peaceful protests. In downtown LA, tensions rose at USC where protests led to property damage. USC officials hope for a more reasonable response in the future.
