Itongadol.- Dozens of haredim rioted in Jerusalem on Sunday night while throwing stones and setting trash bins on fire.
According to the police, the trigger for the event was two haredi soldiers walking through the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea Shearim.
Firefighters were called to the scene to extinguish the fire. Police forces claimed the rioters fled the scene when they arrived.
Police also reported that the haredi soldiers, who allegedly triggered the riot, left the neighborhood unharmed and that no complaint was filed as of yet.
A firefighting commander told Ynet that "as of 11 pm, riots began in two spots in the neighborhood. We were called to handle burning trash cans and containers that were blocking some of the roads. There was no access to all bins due to the crowd of rioters. Some of the bins were taken away and the teams awaited police escort in order to act."
