Haredi Mob Stones Cops In Mea Shearim
Shmarya Rosenberg • Failedmessiah.com
Israeli police officers responding to a report of a damaged car in the haredi Mea Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem were attacked by a mob made up of dozens of haredim.
According to a brief report in Ynet, the haredim mob swarmed the police vehicle, surrounded it and stoned its rear window.
The embattled police officers called for backup which arrived and dispersed the mob.
No injuries or arrests were reported.
Update 4:15 pm CDT – The story appears to have taken place in the Beit Yisrael neighborhood of Jerusalem rather than in Mea Shearim. The "damaged" car was reportedly carrying haredi women the local haredi modesty patrol considered to be 'immodestly' dressed, and the assailants were allegedly members of that patrol. Here are the details we now have them.
