2 Haredi soldiers attacked with stones in Mea Shearim
Dozens of haredim threw stones at two haredi IDF soldiers in Jerusalem's ultra-Orthodox Mea She'arim neighborhood on Sunday night, police stated.This isn't new. There've been some attacks at times against Haredis who've served in the army when seen in uniform in neighborhoods where Haredi residents are dominant. It's very sad. Those yeshivas and synagogues who allow this kind of behavior against army personnel should be the first to have any funding revoked, if they get any.
The haredim lit trash cans on fire and fled the scene.
Firefighters arrived to extinguish the blazes. No injuries were reported.
Th incident came after an anti-draft demonstration staged by the radical Eda Haredit organization turned violent Thursday night, with haredi protestors throwing rocks, glass bottles and other objects at police in front of Jerusalem’s IDF recruiting office in Jerusalem's Romema.
Update: here's more news telling about the concern that Haredi soldiers will be targeted by their communities.
