Shortly after shabbos, MK Eliezer Menachem Moses decided to contact Minister of Public Security Aharonovitch to share his feelings, to explain that a low-flying police chopper that hovered over the protest areas on shabbos was a significant disturbance of the holy day and he wished to express his disapproval over the chilul shabbos. Moses is a resident of the Shichun Chabad area, about a kilometer from the protest.
In his letter, the Yahadut HaTorah MK writes that a police chopper hovered over chareidi areas of the capital, flying very low, significantly disturbing the tranquility of the day, including tefillos in shuls as well as being offensive to the religious sensibilities of residents. Moses cited the public chilul shabbos by the police chopper is unacceptable.
“I request that the minister please address this issues cited in the letter with the upmost seriousness, and in the event the chopper’s activities were avoidable, to take the appropriate actions against those responsible for the brazen chilul shabbos”.
