Two far-left activists were arrested on suspicion
of setting fire to a housing protest tent set up by right-wing activists in Tel
Aviv on Thursday.
Police said a verbal confrontation developed between
the suspects and those who had set up the tent on the corner of Sderot
Rothschild and Rehov Allenby.
Following the argument, "two youths in
their 20s set the tent on fire, and assaulted a photographer on the scene," a
Tel Aviv police spokeswoman said.
The suspects fled the scene, but were soon captured
by officers from the Lev Tel Aviv police station and arrested.
