Some 300 haredi men took to
Agudat Israel street in the capital's Me'a She'arim neighborhood late
Tuesday night, to protest the evacuation of a warehouse in the Batei
Haredi media outlets reported the Tuesday
afternoon arrest of Avraham Hirshman, a central activist in the
struggle between members of Batei Varsha and Kollel Polin over the
building's ownership, as the reason to the protest, as well as the
discontent in the haredi street was caused by what they perceive as
the police's intervention on behalf of Kollel Polin, who regained
ownership of the building.
Protesters threw stones at the
police forces alerted to the scene, who dispersed the demonstrators
without the use of special means. No casualties were reported.
