Ultra-Orthodox protesters block streets in Bnei Brak

Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) protesters blocked Jabitonsky Street in the center of Bnei Brak on Monday. The protesters, from the Jerusalem Faction, were protesting mandatory IDF enlistment, the second-such protest since Thursday.
Last week, a protest at the entrance to Jerusalem by the Jerusalem Faction lasted for a number of hours.
