Several hundred haredi protesters were hurling stones and bottles at Jerusalem police, as well as setting trash cans on fire on Sunday night. The police were trying to disperse them using water cannons. There were no casualties.

The crowd gathered in Jerusalem’s Bar Ilan street, long-time site of haredi Shabat demonstrations, to protest the evacuation of graves from the site for Ashkelon’s Barzilai hospital’s reinforced emergency department.
