Twenty people were either arrested or detained during clashes with the police as around 300 protested the coronavirus lockdown of the ultra-Orthodox Romema neighborhood of Jerusalem on Monday. 
One of the protesters was a 13-year-old boy, whose twin brother was also arrested two weeks ago in the Old City. According to Ynet, the protesters fired fireworks, set fire to garbage cans and broke through the checkpoints set up at the site.
