Escalating Campus Tensions and Hate Crimes as Individuals are Struck by a Car

This troubling incident has taken place against the backdrop of heightened tensions on the Stanford campus where individuals were intentionally struck by a car resulting in reported hate crimes against both Jewish and Palestinian students, as well as those advocating for Palestine. These tensions have escalated following the Hamas attack and Israel’s retaliatory war in Palestinian territories.

Students have been actively participating in walkouts, vigils, sit-ins and rallies to condemn both Israeli and Hamas actions and to mourn those who have been intentionally struck by a car and affected by the violence. To address the increased tension Stanford’s Department of Public Safety has deployed additional security at key locations on campus working to ensure a safe and secure campus environment.
