Activists in the week-long tent protests against the cost of living and housing prices seemed to be adopting more aggressive tactics Thursday morning after a week of much more passive sleep-ins across the country.

Student activists took over a construction site at the corner of Rehov Dizengoff and Rehov Frishman early Thursday morning, noting that there is construction taking place but only for wealthy buyers.

Another protest developed in front of the Kirya IDF base, with demonstrators blocking a busy intersection at the corner of Kaplan and Menachem Begin and setting up tents in the intersection, Israeli media reported.
