MK Dov Henin (Hadash) strongly condemned "police violence" against demonstrators Saturday night in the Hatikva neighborhood.

A demonstration against plans to remove protest tents in south Tel Aviv’s Hatikva neighborhood ended in disturbances and arrests.

"The tent city in Hatikva neighborhood does not exist by way of protest but due to lack of choice.  The role of the municipality is to find solutions for them... I call to prevent the evacuation of the tents and to immediately release the detainees," said Henin.

Hundreds of people took part in a march that began at Gan Hatikva and proceeded toward Yigal Allon Street. Police said the gathering was illegal.
