 A bus ran into a group of Haredi protestors in the Meah Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem on Sunday night, Mako reported.




The Haredi protestors were blocking the Shabbat Square intersection in Jerusalem in protest against an incident where a girl was arrested after she claimed that she was a religious Jew in order to avoid drafting into the IDF, according to Mako.

The bus was attempting to go down the street and continued to drive towards a crowd of protesters who filled the street. Video of the incident shows protesters running to the sides as the bus drove towards them.
