Arab students at Jerusalem’s Hebrew University held a demonstration earlier this week in support of the hunger strike of Palestinian prisoners, during which they chanted anti-Zionist slogans and called for an intifada.

Some of the protesters also held up pictures of terror convicts who are being held in Israeli prisons, including Ahmad Sa’adat, who assassinated Israeli minister Rechavam Zeevi in 2001.

Members of the far-right Im Tirzu group, who saw the demonstration and asked to hold a counter-protest next to it, were denied permission to do so.

The university said in a statement that the Arab students’ protest was held with permission and that “no illegal statements were made” in it.
