Three chareidi women were detained by police on Sunday morning at the entrance to the IDF Jerusalem Induction Center on Rashi Street.
The women are members of an organization combating the induction of women into he IDF. They report to the Rashi Street facility almost daily, approaching women and offering assistance in avoiding military service in the name of their ‘Merkaz Hatzalah’ organization.
The women report that police have begun to harass them, as was the case Sunday morning, June 16, 2019. They told Kikar Shabbos News, “this represents crossing a red line by police”, and “there will be consequences for their actions”. They add that before they are out in the streets, they consult with lawyers and they are well-aware of their rights and they do not break the law.
Later in the day, chareidim gathered at Bar Ilan Street in the capital, blocking buses and private vehicles, as seen in accompanying photos and video. One person was taken into custody.
