A physical confrontation occurred on Wednesday between Druze and Muslim high schoolers in the village of Maghar in northern Israel.

The incident began as an argument between several Druze and Muslim students, apparently concerning the security situation and support for Israel. The majority of Maghar residents are Druze, most of whom are patriotic Israelis who serve in the IDF. The village also has an Arab-Muslim and Arab-Christian minority.

Former Minister Ayoub Qara praised the Druze student, stating, "Cheers to the Druze who acted quickly to halt the expressions of joy and support for the abominable murder committed by Hamas-ISIS.

I call on my brothers from the Druze community in any place you find expressions of support for Hamas-ISIS, act quickly with force to take down the internal enemy until security forces arrive."
