For the third time in two weeks, Beit Shemesh City Hall carried out an operation to remove modesty signs as instructed to do so by the High Court of Justice.
It has not been too long since the last operation, the removal of the signs, which have since been replaced by larger signs. The city held another operation during the predawn hours on Tuesday, 8 Teves, under the watchful eye and assistance from police.
The signs removed on Tuesday morning were back in place, a few short hours later.
Mayor Moshe Abutbul once again called on the court to take City Hall out of the process, which he feels should be handled by police as the city’s is not capable of dealing with the matter, not to mention the significant expense involved in the operations to remove them. Abutbul calls on police to enforce the law and address the removal of the signs in line with the court order.
