Arab residents of the northern village of Baka al-Gharibye on Thursday joined the national tent protests against the high price of housing across the country and the demolition of homes in Arab communities.

Organizers of the village's tent protest hung signs reading, among other slogans, "Bibi, we also deserve affordable housing," and "Bibi, pay attention to us too."Tent protesters were expected to hold demonstrations in cities around the country Thursday evening as part of escalating demands to reduce the country's skyrocketing real estate prices.
