Haredi vigilantes assault light rail employees in Jerusalem

Dozens of ultra-Orthodox (haredi) vigilantes on Monday assaulted light rail employees and infrastructure at the Yirmiyahu-Bar-Ilan intersection in Jerusalem, N12 reported.
The vigilantes reportedly broke in to the construction site and damaged equipment and fences in actions meant to display their objection to the new light rail being built in the mostly ultra-Orthodox area.
Six involved individuals were reportedly arrested by police.
