The Committee of University Presidents decided Wednesday that it will extend the second semester by two weeks, Israel Radio reported. Universities, said the report, would order students to return to class on Sunday. Lecturers are expected to resume teaching regardless if "only one student turns up," said Israel Radio. Those students that refused to return to classes at this point will endanger their education, said the committee, adding that they would do all that they could to help students make up for the missing material. Universities leaders said that they understood the students' struggle, but added that is was adamant that both universities and students fight together for higher-education.
