Askhkelon Police on Tuesday denied reports that Haredi protesters had thrown rocks at construction workers building a rocket-proof emergency room at Barzilai Hospital earlier in the day.

The police confirmed Haredi protesters' claims that they only prayed and demonstrated peacefully at the constructions area, which was previously an ancient gravesite.

Dozens of Haredi protesters congregated at the site earlier on Tuesday.
