Following the arrests of four talmidei yeshiva from Ponevezh listed as AWOL (Absent without Official Leave) by the IDF, protests have been taking place in a number of cities around Israel throughout the week. The latest protest was held in Beit Shemesh. The stormy protest included the shouts of “Gevald” as chareidim sat in the street in an effort to block traffic, then reverting to calling police “Nazis” as they were removed, some detained.
A total of seven arrests were reported and the suspects were taken to the local police station. (YWN)
