Some 1,500 haredim were protesting Sunday evening across the street from the Jerusalem Intel plant. The haredim offered prayer and recited psalms as protesters continued to arrive. While the event remained calm and without disturbance, tensions were mounting. The demonstrators were voicing opposition to Intel's operations on Shabbat. Police were keeping the media approximately 25 meters from the protesters as locals watched from adjacent windows.
