Haredi extremists struck again
in the predominantly ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim, apparently protecting a local felon:
Police officers carrying out a search for a suspect in the predominantly haredi neighborhood of Meah Sharim in Jerusalem came under a barrage of stones on Monday, leaving one injured.
The incident occurred as both plainclothes and uniformed officers attempted to locate an individual believed to be hiding out around Salant and Huni Hamagal streets.
Officers entered and searched a building in the area, but failed to capture the suspect.
During the search, a large group formed outside of the building and hurled stones at police.
One officer was struck in the head and evacuated to Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus. He is reportedly in good condition.
If this was a Muslim extremist the police were looking for, that makes the assault on police all the more disturbing.
