An angry mob killed a police car with stones and planks during an illegal rally in the city • Earlier, two policemen were lightly injured in a violent demonstration
A policewoman was injured this evening (Thursday) during a violent riot in the city of Bnei Brak, during which police vehicles were killed and police officers were beaten with fists and planks.
Earlier today, young people rioted near a yeshiva that opened in the city.
During an activity of licensing inspectors in the city of Bnei Brak, an illegal gathering began, during which the crowd noticed a rented vehicle with police officers on duty.
Dozens of ultra-Orthodox arrived at the scene and began throwing stones and planks at the vehicle, smashing windows and pecking at tires.
The crowd even tried to open the mobile doors, and take out the policemen who were locked in the vehicle.
The trapped officers were forced to call for help and rescue.
Following the incident, a policewoman was lightly injured in her hand.
The Minister of the Interior and Chairman of Shas, Minister Aryeh Deri, responded to the tragic incident and said:
The rioters should be stopped and acted upon with all the severity of the law.
Must follow the guidelines and save lives.
It's in our minds. "
MK Moshe Arbel also condemned the attackers, saying: "I express shock and disgust from a disturbed mob dressed as ultra-Orthodox who physically harmed police officers. Barbarism of this kind has no place in our camp and in society.
The municipality of Bnei Brak stated: "The municipality strongly condemns the violent incident tonight against the Israeli police. We are in a state of mental supervision and we must all act and do everything to prevent the continuation of the disease and the existential danger that follows. "The city's rabbis and hundreds of thousands of residents. This is a serious case of a group of boys who must be brought to justice. This exceptional event cannot tarnish a relationship of respect and cooperation with the police and security forces in recent months."
In the afternoon, the police closed a yeshiva that acted contrary to the instructions in Bnei Brak and arrested 5 suspects on suspicion of disturbing the place during which two policemen were lightly injured.
The police noticed Rabbi Akiva Street in the yeshiva, which looked closed, but an inspection revealed that there were dozens of crowds in violation of the instructions, at the risk of their health.
The policemen ordered the dispersal of the crowd and in response the crowd fortified the place and threw stones at policemen and the police car and later blocked the traffic lane, when 2 policemen were lightly injured.
The police acted to disperse the crowd and arrested 5 suspects on suspicion of disorderly conduct.
