The Arab-Jewish Hadash group at Tel Aviv University along with other leftist groups plan to hold a Nakba Day ceremony in Entin Square in front of the main entrance of the University on Wednesday and a counter Zionist demonstration is scheduled by Im Tirtzu.

Im Tirtzu, which describes itself as a pro-Israel grassroots movement, told The Jerusalem Post that it would hold a counter demonstration, as it usually does, with the banner “Nakba Nonsense.” “It is an embarrassment that Israeli academic institutions do not try to prevent such ceremonies,” said the organization’s spokesman.

The annual ceremony to commemorate the Nakba at Tel Aviv University is scheduled to take place at 11:30 in the morning, said a statement released by the Hadash group.
