The chairman of the main settler organization visited the tent city in Tel Aviv to express solidarity.

Danny Dayan, chairman of the Yesha Council, met Tuesday with the leaders of the housing protest. He was joined by the heads of two West Bank municipalities.

“This protest has brought the true social hardships to the surface and forced us all to address them,” Dayan reportedly said. “We must join hands and find solutions, so that this protest does not go to waste.”

The settler movement reportedly has been reluctant to join the protesters out of fear that the movement is politicized, and would blame lack of government money for affordable housing on the settlements and haredi Orthodox.
