Reports from the Visegrad 24 Twitter channel revealed her alleged history of posting anti-Semitic content on social media, sparking outrage and prompting inquiries into her conduct. Despite prior awareness of her online activities, the university authorities purportedly failed to address the issue until it gained public attention. Andersen’s online presence had garnered a substantial following of 21.6k individuals.

The Medical University of Warsaw has recently declared taking appropriate legal measures in response to the matter. The incident has underscored the complexities and sensitivities surrounding the ongoing conflict, which has led to a surge in pro-Palestinian demonstrations across various nations.

As the situation escalates, with Israeli military operations intensifying in the Gaza Strip, the toll on civilian lives continues to rise. According to the Ministry of Health in the Gaza Strip, the conflict has resulted in a devastating count of 4,385 Palestinian casualties and 13,651 injuries since its onset. The toll has surpassed that of previous conflicts between Israel and Palestine, leaving a grim reminder of the escalating human cost.

The conflict traces its roots back to a terrorist attack by Palestinian Hamas, which triggered a series of violent exchanges resulting in substantial loss of life and a deeply entrenched humanitarian crisis.
