Police clad with riot gear started swarming Yale University’s campus early Monday where hundreds of students have been staging an anti-Israel protest.

Footage posted online showed cops arriving at the Ivy League school adjacent to a plaza at the New Haven campus where roughly 200 protesters were gathered.

It wasn’t immediately clear if anyone had been arrested.

It comes after protests at Yale turned violent over the weekend when a Jewish student journalist reporting on the encampment was stabbed in the eye with a Palestinian flag Saturday night.

The arrival of cops comes after more than 100 protests were cuffed and hauled away when the NYPD were called in to clear out a similar protest from Columbia University last week.
