Justice Minister Yaakov Ne'eman responded Thursday evening to the heckling he received over the detainment of Kiryat Arba Chief Rabbi Dov Lior, when visiting the Tomb of the Patriarchs, in Hebron, earlier in the day.

“The justice minister was appalled at the public blasphemy that took place this morning at the Tomb of the Patriarchs, when the prayer service was interrupted by taunts and heckles by a bunch of people who refused to honor the other prayers’ requests to continue praying,” read a statement issued by Neeman’s office. “Severe unruliness of this type will not prevent the Israeli justice and legal systems from continuing to prosecute without bias.”
