Residents of Beit Shemesh have had to string up Israeli flags down a central Beit Shemesh thoroughfare for Yom Haatzmaut because, they say, the municipality refused to do so.

Although many streets throughout Beit Shemesh have been generously festooned with flags and bunting, Herzog Street, which runs directly between the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Ramat Beit Shemesh Bet and the more modern neighborhood of Givat Sharet, was not included in the patriotic street decorations.

The municipality does not hang flags inside the city’s haredi neighborhoods at all.
