Some haredi extremists protested against the State of
Israel in Jerusalem on Monday, shortly before the Remembrance Day
The haredim burned trash cans, threw
rocks at passing cars, tore Israeli flags and tried to block Shivtei
The men fled the scene when police
arrived. Municipality workers were called to put out the fires and
re-open the street.
Soon after the siren, a 14-year-old boy
was arrested for burning an Israeli flag near the Shabbat Square in
Mea Shearim.Related: Independence Day the Haredi way
