Summary from the AllSides News Team

Police have arrested at least 40 pro-Palestinian protestors on Yale’s campus, according to the school’s police chief.

The Details: Protestors have been camped out for several days, and were issued warnings late Sunday night and early Monday morning. Police dressed in riot gear reportedly warned protestors before beginning to make arrests and cleared the plaza by 8 a.m. local time.

For Context: On Saturday night, a Jewish student journalist reporting on the protests was jabbed in the eye with a Palestinian flag by protestors. Last week, the New York Police Department apprehended over 100 protestors at Columbia University.

How The Media Covered It: The story is still developing. As of Monday morning, the New York Post (Lean Right bias) gave context on the assault of the student journalist, whereas CNN (Lean Left bias) and WTNH (Center bias) did not. CNN reported over 40 arrests, while the Post said it wasn’t clear how many were apprehended.
