Tel Aviv University's right-wing student groups will hold a rally in Antin Square on Sunday at noon to protest a speech by a convicted terrorist scheduled to take place at the university on Monday.

Mohammed Kana'ane was invited to speak at a conference organized by left-wing students in honor of Land Day, which commemorates the deaths of six Galilee Arabs in 1976 riots over a government decision to confiscate land.

Kana'ane served nearly five years in an Israeli prison for his involvement with Hezbollah and for funding weapons-making training.

The demonstration was expected to attract around 500 students and supporters.
