      Housing Demonstrators Detained

      Police detained four demonstrators who tried to block the entrance to the Knesset, Monday morning, as part of a protest against the lack of affordable housing. One of those arrested was a young woman who brought blocks in her car that were used to block the road.

      A police officer was lightly injured in clashes with the demonstrators and received treatment at the scene. The protesters were removed and the blocks, which had been scattered on the street, were put on the other side of the sidewalk.
