Tent protest leaders threatened on Wednesday to increase their efforts if the Housing Committee's bill passes second and third readings in the Knesset and becomes law, Army Radio reported.

The bill, which is the linch-pin of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's housing reform, provides for the establishment of housing committees in each district which will be given the authority to approve construction of new housing units.

The tent protest movement considers the bill to be detrimental to the cause of affordable housing for the Israeli public.
