Haredi extremists injure 3 policemen in their defiance of Corona lockdown

The Jerusalem Faction, as it's called, originally founded by an extremist Haredi socialist, caused chaos in Ashdod:
Six Ashdod yeshiva students from the extremist ultra-Orthodox Jerusalem Faction group were arrested following clashes with mounted police officers on Monday.

Police arrived at the scene on Monday afternoon following reports that the Ashdod-based haredi yeshiva had broken coronavirus regulations by remaining open during Israel's nationwide lockdown.

They were called in by municipality supervisors who were being attacked at the scene.

By the time the protests ended on Monday evening, 11 individuals were arrested for disorderly conduct. Three police officers were injured during the clashes, in which hundreds of students participated. The officers were treated at the scene.

The radical Bnei Torah haredi faction said in a statement that the ultra-Orthodox population was "terrified to hear" about the police's "criminal" attempt to close the yeshiva, insisting on the legal right of the yeshiva to remain open, as it houses a dormitory.

The school was open and teaching students in violation of the current government guidelines. Students who placed themselves on the road in protest were dragged away by officers.

Meanwhile, in Modi'in Illit, similar protests took place. Dozens of ultra-Orthodox protesters confronted police when they tried to locate the head of a local Talmud Torah school after reports came in of dozens of students on the premises, according to N12.
What the students and such did was offensive, of course. A good way to make it difficult for them to operate their yeshivas, though, could be to cut off electricity and water systems for the building, and I wish such measures could be enacted as penalties for failure to comply with guidelines already.

And this wasn't the only disturbing incident with Haredi extremists this week. Another incident took place today in Beit Shemesh where an officer had to fire a warning shot after being threatened:
Police officers were pelted with stones Tuesday morning as they arrived at an independent Haredi school in Beit Shemesh that was open despite the government-mandated closure of all academic institutions during the current lockdown.

The volunteer police officer who was accompanying the law enforcement officials fired his gun into the air outside the Talmud Torah school in the Belz community.

Israel Police said the volunteer fired into the air as he believed his life was in danger. There were no casualties in the incident and police reinforcements were called to the scene.

According to the police, as the police officer was trying to locate the director of the educational institution, a crowd began to gather around the volunteer who was standing next to their car and began hurling stones at him.

The police officers left the scene without being able to have the school closed.
Well again, this is why a good way to crack down on these particular thugs would be to cut off their electrical and water connections. That way they can send a message better.
