Netanya Protest Tents to Stay until New Year


The city of Netanya announced, on Sunday, that it will not uproot the tent city at the Poleg Junction before the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah, which begins Wednesday evening.

The city was responding to a request by the Citizen's Rights Association to Mayor Miriam Feinberg to stop eviction efforts immediately, after city inspectors came to the junction, without warning, at 8:00 Sunday morning and began to dismantle the tents and destroy their contents. At one point, the inspectros stopped and threatened to return and continue their efforts, but as of 6:00, they had not returned.
