About thirteen people were arrested in a clash between police and tent protesters on Monday afternoon in Tel Aviv’s Lewinsky Park, according to residents.
According to reports, municipality clerks visited the camp site with two police officers in order to shut off its pirated electricity. An argument broke out between the officials and demonstrators. Police attempted to arrest a protester, tasering him when he resisted.
About fifteen minutes later, about thirty riot police were brought to the area in vans and began arresting protesters. Residents said that the riot police also vandalized the camp site, tearing up tents and damaging protesters’ belongings.
