As promised, the Peleg Yerushalmi protested on the streets of Bnei Brak on Monday afternoon.
The protest surrounds the arrest of A Sephardi Yeshiva Bochur named Nissan Raada, who was arrested by military police for failing to report to an IDF induction center. He was arrested last week.
Following his arrest, stormy protests were held in Yeurhalayim, where approximately 50 members of the Peleg were “Mikadesh Shem Shomayim” and arrested for blocking the Jerusalem Light Rail and some major intersections. They were all released the next day.
As YWN reported, the The Israel Police announced on Monday that they will not prevent the holding of the protest out of a desire to allow the freedom of speech and protest of any citizen who so desires. At the same time, they added that they will not allow any disturbance of the peace and will act resolutely against violence of any kind.
As soon as the protesters shut down the street, police moved in and arrested began. Eventually, water canons, horses, riot gear and other resources were brought in to assist in moving the protesters.
