Almost 200 people took part in a demonstration held on Monday afternoon outside the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in protest of the military operation in the Gaza Strip. The demonstrators held signs reading "Free Gaza" and "Free Palestine" and waved Palestinian flags. Some 300 Jewish students held a counter-demonstration in support of Operation Cast Lead. At least sixty policemen were at the scene in order to ensure clashes would not break out between the two sides.
