As the student strike entered its 26th day on Wednesday, some 40 students from Ben Gurion University in the Negev threatened to hold an open-ended hunger strike in Beersheba's Kiryat Hamemeshala (Government Compound). The students set up a tent encampment as part of their ongoing protests against the Shochat Committee's recommendation to raise tuition fees and urged fellow students from across the country to join them.
