Overnight sleep-in protests against rising housing costs were set to take place Thursday night at Kikar Zion in Jerusalem and at Kikar Habima in Tel Aviv.

Protesters planned to arrive with tents and sleep in the two squares. One of the organizers from Tel Aviv told Army Radio that the Tel Aviv Municipality was attempted to cancel the event but that "all of the permits were received and activists were already gathering in the square."
