Municipality clerks attempted to impound tents from two different campsites in northern Tel Aviv witnesses reported on Tuesday.

Yael Havassy, one of the founders of the Ben-Gurion campsite said that a few municipality clerks came by late morning on Tuesday and began trying to impound a number of the 30 or so tents at the site.

"It's not clear why they came and when we spoke to them and asked them if they had an eviction notice they left."

She added that they managed to take three of the tents and told those present that they can come pick them up from city hall later in the day.
