Postal workers in Ashkelon refused to distribute some 35,000 leaflets from a Christian missionary group to addresses in the city, the Israel Broadcasting Authority reported on Tuesday.

The leaflets, in Hebrew and Russian, were produced by a group calling itself The Baptist Congregation, and called on people to turn to the organization and "the path of Jesus" to help solve problems in their lives.

According to the IBA, numerous postmen in the city have said they find the leaflets offensive and do not wish to distribute them. Jeremy Sharon
