Haredim in the Mea She'arim neighborhood of Jerusalem reportedly assaulted a female firefighter as she worked with other firefighters to put out fires in the haredi neighborhood.
The assault was reported on Israel Radio earlier today.
The female firefighter was working in a larger group of firefighters to put out garbage fires when the haredim threw unidentified objects at her, hitting her back.
She was reported to have been very lightly injured and no medical care was necessary.
Even so, the Jerusalem city government reportedly viewed the attack as "severe."
Haredi volunteers in Jerusalem's firefighting establishment were reportedly “working to negotiate with the haredi community to prevent such incidents in the future.”
