Police clear rent protest on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv

Police cleared students who were blocking the corner of Frishman and Dizengoff streets in Tel Aviv Thursday morning, protesting what they say are exorbitant rent prices.
According to Israeli media, some students came to the corner, where construction is underway for a new luxury high-rise building, earlier in the morning attempting to disrupt construction work.
Police threatened the activists with restraining orders and arrest which caused students to evacuate the premises.
