      Housing Demonstrations in Tel Aviv, Be'er Sheva, J'lem

      Students held a torchlight march from Rotschild Boulevard to Ibn-Gavirol Boulevard in the direction of the Gindi Towers in Tel Aviv, Thursday evening to protest the lack of affordable housing in the country. They also told police sent to preserve order that they deserved more.

      In Be'er Sheva, dozens of demonstrators blocked Reger Boulevard and burned a tire. In Jerusalem, where demonstrators blocked Shlomo Hamelech Street during the late afternoon, about 40 students blocked Agron Street, not far from the Prime Minister's Residence.
