The tent cities remaining in Tel Aviv from this summer’s social justice protests were evacuated.

Police and Tel Aviv city inspectors evacuated at least three tent city sites on Monday, as well as empty tents on the main Rothschild Boulevard site. A court injunction prevented a full evacuation of that site.

Those who were evicted from the sites are mostly homeless, according to reports. City social workers have spent several days trying to find places for the homeless tent city dwellers, according to the municipality.

The municipality said it would establish “dialogue centers” on the sites.
