Another Haredi soldier attacked with trash projectiles

Another case of Haredi youth acting very despicably towards their defenders:
Haredi youngsters in the Beit Yisrael neighborhood in Jerusalem lobbed on Thursday various trash at a religious soldier, who took refuge from his assailants at a relative's home in the vicinity.

Police are combing the area for the suspects. In similar cases no arrests were made. [...]

According to the police, the religious soldier arrived at the neighborhood to meet relatives, when several haredi youngsters gathered around him and began to curse at him. The incident quickly deteriorated into violence, when the group started tossing various items at the uniformed soldier.

Police later escorted the soldier unharmed out of the area.

"There were many people there," the soldier recounted to Ynet. "They threw stuff at me, cartons, vegetables. I saw it wouldn't stop so I just called the police."

He said that when the police arrived "they all ran to their holes." The soldier said he felt humiliated: "I go back to the northern border, guard so people will not enter and harm anyone – no matter who you are, haredi, secular, religious, Jew, Arab, and this is what you get – so there's a hard feeling."

The soldier said the incident will not deter him from wearing his uniform in the area. "I'm not scared," he stressed. "This is Jerusalem, my capital just as it is there's. I'm really not going to stop walking around it." [...]
No soldier should have to be afraid to wear his uniform in public for fear even their own communities will harrass and threaten them. And the cowards who attacked him should be tracked and punished severely.
