Leeds University has launched an investigation after a Palestinian terrorist addressed students, advocating for “armed struggle” as a means of resistance.

Leila Khaled, who hijacked two international flights for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), spoke to students at a virtual event on Friday.

During the Zoom event, as part of the Apartheid Off Campus campaign, promoted by the University of Leeds Palestine Solidarity Group, Khaled told students that Palestinians are “not afraid of struggle”.

She added: “We have used all means of struggle and we are still determined to continue using all means of struggle including armed struggle.”

Following Khaled’s address, Adam Saeed, the student chair of the meeting, told attendees: “I think we can all be inspired by this”.
