Ultra-Orthodox extremists threw stones at a car driven by a woman in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Beit Shemesh on Wednesday afternoon, the police reported.

The woman was unharmed but her vehicle sustained light damage.



A police spokesman said that the patrols were looking for a number of suspects who had left the vicinity of the incident and also interviewed a number of eye-witnesses.

It is believed that the attack was perpetrated because of the perceived lack of modesty of the woman’s attire.
