The Jaffa Military Court on Sunday, 24 Adar, extended the remand of Meir Brodiansky, ordering him to remain in jail without bail pending the outcome of his trial. He was arrested last week at a police inspection when the police computer showed him as being AWOL from the IDF.
Protests will continue on Monday, 25 Adar, beginning at 4:00PM in Bnei Brak in Yerushalayim.
Hundreds of Bochrim from Peleg-affiliated Yeshivos forced the closures of roadways, bringing traffic to a halt. Police brought in water cannons, spraying the protesters with foul-smelling water. Police horses were also used to try and disperse the protesters. It was reported that one arrest was made.
Last week, protests were held in Jerusalem, in the areas of the Cord’s Bridge and Shivtei Yisrael Street.
In the accompanying photo, we see a new sign that accompanies Peleg protests, informing motorists “We are protesting to remain Jews who observe Torah and Mitzvos”.
As YWN reported last Wednesday, a Meir Brodiansky, Yeshiva Bochur affiliated with the Peleg was arrested at a checkpoint on Highway 90 near Maale Adumim during a routine inspection early Wednesday morning. When it was determined by police that he is AWOL from the IDF, he was arrested and handed over to military police.
Meir is a Talmid at Yeshiva Kol Torah – a Peleg affiliated Yeshiva. He is a grandson of Rav Yitzchock Yeruchim Bordiansky, who is a Mashgiach in the Yeshiva.
One wishing to remain updated regarding the protests and traffic may phone the Israel Police 110 traffic number. Police commanders preparing for the Monday afternoon protests insist there will be no tolerance exhibited to persons attempting to shut down roads during afternoon rush hour.
