Two hundred haredim demonstrated Monday at the Andromeda Housing Project in Jaffa, police reported.

Three demonstrators were arrested for disturbing the peace during the demonstration which spilled out on to Yefet Street, temporarily closing it to traffic.

Haredim have demonstrated against archaeological digs in the area several times because of their opposition to disturbing Jewish graves on the site.
