Hundreds of haredim were on Wednesday afternoon conducting a violent protest against the construction work taking place at the Andromeda Hill area in Jaffa, where a high-rise residential complex is planned.

The haredim maintain that the works desecrate the sanctity of ancient bones at the site.

Rabbi Tuvia Weiss, the senior rabbinic leader of the Eda Haredit Badatz (rabbinical court), was on the scene to encourage the protesters and lead a prayer against those working at the site.
