Protesters set fire to tents on Tel Aviv’s Kaplan Street in a demonstration against the government’s handling of the near-daily Hezbollah attacks on northern Israel, which, over the last two weeks alone, have caused fires that burned tens of thousands of acres of land.

The tents were set up as part of an installation entitled “We Lost the North,” by the Change Generation protest group following the main anti-government protest earlier in the evening.

In a post on X, the group says that the installation “makes it clear to passersby that when they arrive in the country’s north, they are leaving Israel’s borders.”
