The Tel Aviv District Court rejected on Monday an urgent request filed early on Monday morning by sixteen members of the Rothschild Boulevard protest encampment, who had asked for an injunction to delay evacuation of a section of the protest tents.

In rejecting the request, Judge Esther Covo noted that previous court rulings had already decided that the encampment should be cleared.

"There is nothing preventing the evacuation of the encampment," Judge Covo said, and added that the petitioners should "turn [their] attention to the extensive damage that has been caused both to the petitioners themselves and to the general public as a result of staying on public lands."
