As some social activists have begun to take their tents down, National Student Union chair Itzik Shmuli called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to prevent localities from evicting homeless persons and those in need from their tents in tent cities across the country, Army Radio reported Monday.

Shmuli wrote the prime minister a letter with the request, mentioning specificly the tent cities Shmuli mentioned were in Kiryat Motzkin, Pardes Hanna, Bat Yam and Holon.

Shmuli asked the prime minister to find a "real solution for housing the homeless still living in tents as part of the overall solutions made by the Trajctenberg Committee," the letter said.
