Ultra-Orthodox rioters destroyed a public transportation bus outside the Mea Shearim neighborhood on Tuesday. They are protesting the application of lockdown rules to their schools, synagogues, and other institutions. A spokesperson for Egged Transportation stated, “Aside from the danger posed to the passengers and the drivers, dozens of Egged buses were heavily damaged… We call on police and the Transportation Ministry to assist public transport drivers and passengers and provide us with tools in the uncompromising fight against the terrorism running amok in the public space”. Violent demonstrations broke out in other parts of the country as well. Also in Jerusalem, Haredi rioters attacked firefighters while trying to put out a fire started by several extremists. In Beit Shemesh, rioters threw stones and eggs at police forces enforcing coronavirus restrictions in the city. Please pray for the increased civil unrest in Israel. Please pray that all who continue to break the law will be held accountable.
