Some 50 haredi protesters demonstrated on the road leading to Jerusalem's Har Hotzvim industrial park on Saturday afternoon, in protest over the operation of an Intel plant on Shabbat, a police spokesman said. While security forces were deployed at the scene, no violent incidents were reported and no arrests were made. Protests outside the Intel factory have been taking place for the past four weeks every weekend, although they have markedly decreased in size since the first week's protest, which included over 1,000 protesters and was marred by violence and a number of arrests.
