|US student Lara Alqasem held in Israel over BDS support | Al Jazeera English |
Published on Oct 11, 2018
A 22-year-old American graduate student has been detained at Israel's international airport over her alleged support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.
Lara Alqasem appeared in a Tel Aviv court on Thursday to appeal her detention, where she will remain until the court rules; no date for the ruling has been fixed.
Israel has come under heavy criticism for its handling of Alqasem's case.
