Ultra-Orthodox, Israel Police clash in Beit Shemesh; officer wounded – Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News.

In some Jewish cities, local residents appear to believe it is ok to segregate and abuse  women. Inclusive of children. Reports say in the city of Beit Shemesh police and news crews have been injured by hundreds of the ultra- Orthodox holding protests and rioting.

Girls schools have also been the focus of picketing, protests, and attacks.

My understanding is the children are accused of immodest dress.

More to come.
