Several hundred Haredim rioted Tuesday in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim neighborhood over the planned autopsy of a religious woman in northern Israel, police said.
The rioters pelted police with stones and set fire to numerous dumpsters along the central thoroughfare in the area, closing the street off to traffic and choking the surroundings with smoke.
There were no injuries immediately reported.
Police forces were on the scene.
Around 300 right-wing activists clashed with soldiers on Tuesday morning at an IDF post in Ofra, near Amona, which is scheduled to be evacuated on Wednesday. The group broke through the fence and climbed on the heavy machinery and equipment located on the scene.
Some of the equipment was sabotaged in the attack.
The unit that was attacked is not scheduled to take part in the Amona evacuation on Wednesday, rather, it is in charge of protecting the Ofra residents and ensuring security in the area. The machinery, however, is slated for removing the stone structures from the West Bank oupost.
Police were alerted to the scene.
Or are they both bad?
