Eilat boardwalk shopkeepers evicted

Shopkeepers on the Eilat boardwalk cleared out of the northern end of the city’s famous boardwalk on Tuesday, nine months after the Supreme Court ordered the evacuation temporarily delayed.
Long a fixture of the city, the shopkeepers have been the subject of a decade-long effort to remove them from the boardwalk, as the state has ruled that they do not have legal permission to operate at the site.
In 2010, a court ruled that the booths must be closed within six months, a decision the owners appealed to the Supreme Court.
On Tuesday, the shopkeepers agreed to leave voluntarily after their final appeal failed.
