Two far-left activists were arrested on suspicion of setting fire to a housing protest tent set up by right-wing activists in Tel Aviv on Thursday.
Police said a verbal confrontation developed between the suspects and those who had set up the tent on the corner of Sderot Rothschild and Rehov Allenby.
Following the argument, "two youths in their 20s set the tent on fire, and assaulted a photographer on the scene," a Tel Aviv police spokeswoman said.
The suspects fled the scene, but were soon captured by officers from the Lev Tel Aviv police station and arrested.
This is not what it's about - this should not be a left-right thing or even a religious-secular thing. All sectors of the population are suffering under the burden of high housing food and utility costs. Hopefully this incident will prove to be the exception.
