Hundreds of helmeted police descended onto the campus of the University of California at Los Angeles after darkness fell on Wednesday, preparing to clear out a pro-Palestinian protest camp attacked the previous night by pro-Israel supporters.


The impending crackdown at UCLA is the latest flashpoint for mounting tensions on U.S. college campuses where protests over Israel’s conduct of the war in Gaza have led to student clashes with each other, school administrators and law enforcement.


U.S journalist, who has been monitoring the situation, Helena Humphrey explained that the students have defiled the university authorities by encamping in the school premises, using different reinforcement techniques to keep their barricades.



However, police officers have been stationed on the periphery of the tents, awaiting word from commanders to remove barricades and march into the encampment to arrest occupants who refused to leave.
