Groups of demonstrators demanding a reduction in housing prices further escalated their protests on Monday by blocking off roads and junctions simultaneously across the country.

The protesters held up tents - the symbol of the new protest movement- and blocked roads in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, and other areas, demanding "sane" housing prices.

In some cases, the protesters left the roads on their own initiative, while in others, police cleared the activists.

Police cleared a group of ten demonstrators in Haifa's Merkaz Hacarmel area, and stationed patrol cars in the area.

Protesters have vowed to continue their actions.
