Pro-Palestinian demonstrators on Tuesday night (local time) clashed with counter-protesters at UCLA in Los Angeles, California.

According to the Los Angeles police department, police arrived at the scene at the university's request, "due to multiple acts of violence."

According to several reports, at around 11:00 p.m. local time, counter-protesters began to attempt to dismantle the protest camp erected on campus by anti-Israel protesters. In the ensuing chaos, members of both sides scuffled with one another, fireworks were thrown, and teargas were sprayed.

Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass condemned the violence at UCLA, stressing that it is "absolutely abhorrent and inexcusable."

Earlier on Tuesday night, the college declared the protest "unlawful," urging activists to leave.

"The established encampment is unlawful and violates university policy," read the college's message to the protesters, according to NBC News.

Meanwhile, around 300 people were arrested thus far at Columbia University and CCNY.

NYPD's Tarik Sheppard, deputy commissioner for public information, told NBC News that 230 people were arrested at Columbia, while the rest were arrested at CCNY. Of those arrested at Columbia University, between 40 and 50 were at the occupied Hamilton Hall.
