Protesting haredim damage car outside Mea She'arim Welfare Ministry office

Haredi protesters in Mea She'arim on Sunday afternoon damaged a security vehicle parked near the Welfare Ministry office on Rehov Yehezkel in the capital. The protesters, who claim that the welfare office cooperated with police during the "starving mother" affair, broke the vehicle's mirrors and punctured its tires. Police said their forces were on the scene, and were helping the security company's representative evacuate the car from the area. Protesters have been in front of the office since earlier in the afternoon.
