Israeli police summon Hebrew University professor for new interrogation

The Israeli police have summoned Hebrew University professor Nadira Shalhoub-Kevorkian for another interrogation just two days after her release, according to her lawyer, Alaa Mahajna.

Professor Shalhoub-Kevorkian, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, was suspended from her post and arrested on 18 April on suspicion of incitement after she called for "abolishing Zionism" and suggested that accounts of sexual assault during the Hamas-led 7 October attacks on Israel were a "lie".

Eventually the university reversed its decision following an apology from the professor, as well as a concession that sexual assault took place on 7 October.
