Eleven people arrested Saturday night on suspicion of attacking police following a rally for affordable housing in Tel Aviv, were brought Sunday morning before the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court for a remand hearing, which is still ongoing.

The remainder of the 43 people who were arrested on suspicion of attacking police and disturbing public order during the rally were released.

Following the end of the large protests against high housing costs, hundreds of demonstrators blocked off Rehov Ibn Gvirol, and began hurling objects and bottles at police, according to a Tel Aviv police statement.

"A smoke grenade was thrown at police, and there was an attempt to set garbage cans on fire," police added.
