Judges in the Tel Aviv District Court ruled Thursday morning to remove bail conditions imposed on three people arrested during a housing rally in the city Saturday night.

The bail conditions banned the three from returning to the "tent city" encampment on Rothschild Boulevard and from participating in any further demonstrations.

The three protesters were arrested and detained at the end of a protest last Saturday against high housing costs, when hundreds of demonstrators blocked Rehov Ibn Gvirol in the city center, and began hurling objects and bottles at police, according to a Tel Aviv police statement.

A total of 43 people were arrested during the protests, on suspicion of attacking police and disturbing public order.
