Three people were injured and one arrested after a Concordia University brawl between students protesting the Israel-Hamas war.
Montreal police were called to the scene around 1:30 p.m. after three people were reported injured.
A 22-year-old woman was later arrested, according to Global News.
Numerous videos posted to social media show the altercation break out between pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian students.
The incident was the result of two separate student groups who held independent fundraising events to raise awareness about the conflict in close proximity to one another.
Student behaviour at the event began to escalate quickly and it took several hours for officials to break it up.
Montreal police confirmed that a 54-year-old, a student in their 20s and 19-year-old security guard were all injured in the skirmish.
Several politicians came out to publicly condemn the actions of certain students, including Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante, after videos of it began to circulate on social media.
Pascale Dery, the province’s higher education minister also took to social media to express his dismay with the occurrence, calling for calm.
“It is sickening to see the violent targeting of Jewish students take place at Concordia University today. In no way is this behaviour acceptable in any context. It must cease immediately,” wrote Marc Miller, minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship on X (formerly Twitter).
