UC San Diego on Saturday confirmed that a video, which appeared to show Jewish students evacuating a building after gathering to discuss antisemitic threats, is a hoax.

The footage has been circulating on social media.

It was determined by university officials that the video appeared to be old footage from a student government meeting weeks ago. The footage was edited with other images to create the false narrative.

Police also confirmed that no such incident occurred.
