Around a hundred men gathered to protest against army conscription at the IDF conscription center in Jerusalem on Rashi street on Monday afternoon.

After two hours of protests, police intervened and arrested several of the protesters who scuffled with police.

In the last month, there have been several major anti-draft rallies in Jerusalem led by an extremist ultra-Orthodox sect that opposes army service.

The Jerusalem conscription center is a frequent magnet of small protests every week.
