Various US university campuses are in uproar in protest of Israel’s indiscriminate attack on Gaza, Palestine. Students boycotted classes in many universities. In such a situation, hundreds of protesters were arrested by the US police to suppress the movement.

About 108 people were arrested at Emerson College in the city on Wednesday night local time, according to CBS News, according to the police in Boston, Massachusetts. Earlier in the evening, 93 people were taken into police custody from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, California.

Protesters and police also clashed at the University of Texas in Austin, Texas. The authorities said that 34 people have been arrested from there. These new arrests came after massive arrests of protesters at Columbia, Yale and New York universities.

 

The Palestinian independence organization Hamas attacked Israel on October 7. Since that day, Israeli forces continue to attack Gaza indiscriminately. 34 thousand 305 Palestinians were killed in the valley in the attack that lasted for more than six months. Apart from this, there is an acute humanitarian crisis due to lack of food, water and medical equipment.

Protesting students have been hanging tents on the campus of Boston University since last Sunday. It has been alleged that they did not move from there despite being warned. Boston police told CBS News that three of their officers were injured in the clashes with the protesters. One of them is in critical condition. No student was injured in the clash.
