According to a brief report in the Jerusalem Post, an angry crowd of screaming haredim in Beit Shemesh surrounded a car carrying municipal inspectors and prevented them from continuing their work.
The inspectors were checking to make sure that businesses were closed as the law requires on Yom HaZikaron, Israel's Memorial Day honoring soldiers who died defending the country.
Police were called and dispersed the crowd.
There were no reported injuries or arrests, and no reported property damage.
