Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat on Monday night assured Yesha Council Chairman Danny Dayan that a protest tent would not be demolished by police.

Four settlers, later joined by Dayan, started a hunger strike last week to try to convince the government to back off from its current policy of removing illegal outposts such as the Ulpana outpost near Beit El.

Barkat extended the license for the protest tent until Wednesday.
