A number of women who arrived at the Kosel on Tuesday morning, Rosh Chodesh Sivan, knowingly exceeded police guidelines and court decisions and caused provocations to disrupt public order, despite being warned several times in recent weeks against such actions. Police were forced to intervene and warned the women that there would be no alternative but to issue a restraining order against them according to the law, since they act contrary to the court and the law and violate public order.
This group of provocateurs did not hesitate to harass dozens of women who stood north of the ezras noshim and worked their way through physical and verbal violence.
It is emphasized that during the course of the day, many women complained to police at the Kosel that they had been subjected to violence by the same group of women.
The Western Wall Heritage Foundation and the Israel Police are obligated by law to maintain the status quo and the court’s instructions and not allow anybody to take the law into its own hands.
The issue is currently being dealt with by the legal authorities.
