Jerusalem District Court on Thursday released three men to five days house arrest for their alleged involvement in an attack two days earlier by ultra-Orthodox men on a woman hanging up posters for the Mifal Hapayis national lottery in Beit Shemesh.
According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, Natalie Mashiach, 27, was accosted by several men in the ultra-Orthodox Ramat Beit Shemesh Bet neighborhood, who demanded that she leave the area. They surrounded her car and pelted it with stones, smashing several windows, and punctured her tires. One stone struck Mashiach on the head, lightly injuring her.
