A crowd of haredi protestors threw rocks and eggs at police officers and attempted to block off a road on Tuesday in Jerusalem, Israel Police reported.

The demonstration was in protest of the recent IDF draft law for Ultra-Orthodox men.

A police officer was lightly injured as a result of the rock throwing and a suspect was arrested, in addition to three other arrests made at the scene. 

Eventually the crowd was moved off the roadway and continued to protest on the sidewalk.
