Some haredi extremists protested against the State of Israel in Jerusalem on Monday, shortly before the Remembrance Day siren.

The haredim burned trash cans, threw rocks at passing cars, tore Israeli flags and tried to block Shivtei Yisrael street.

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.
