Hundreds of Charedi  protesters demonstrated in Jerusalem against conscription in the Israel Defence Forces.

The protesters clashed with police on Sunday during the demonstrations in the Charedi  neighbourhood of Mea Shearim, leading to the arrest of at least 8 protesters. At least two teenage protesters were injured in the melee, Ynet reported.

Police were seen beating, kicking and dragging the demonstrators. Protesters threw rocks at police.

Israel’s Supreme Court last week struck down a law that increased the number of draft exemptions for Charedi  yeshiva students. The court gave the government one year to rework the draft for Charedi men.
