Pro-Israel Protestors Violently Attack Pro-Palestine Encampment on UCLA Campus

Shocking footage of a violent clash between a group of pro-Israel and pro-Palestine protestors on UCLA’s campus overnight was aired Wednesday morning on Fox & Friends.

The Los Angeles Times reports that the clash occurred when pro-Israel counter-protestors arrived on the campus to tear down the encampment:

Just before midnight, a large group of counter-demonstrators, wearing black outfits and white masks, arrived on campus and tried to tear down the barricades surrounding the encampment. Campers, some holding lumber and wearing goggles and helmets, rallied to defend the encampment’s perimeter.

Videos showed fireworks being set off and at least one being thrown into the camp. Over the next few hours, counter-demonstrators threw objects, including wood and a metal barrier, at the camp and those inside, with fights repeatedly breaking out.

The violence is the worst on campus since counter-protesters, who support Israel, set up a dueling area near where the Gaza war protesters were camping.

A group of security guards could be seen observing the clashes but did not move in to stop them.
