Images of women on billboards and shop windows vandalised in Israeli city

Stores with female mannequins and public advertisements had paint daubed on them

Images of women on billboards and the windows of stores displaying female mannequins were vandalised in the southern Israeli city of Ashdod.

White paint covered the images and was painted on the shop windows, according to a reporter for the Kan public broadcaster, who posted some images on Twitter.

“We must bring to justice whoever perpetrates an act of vandalism and takes the law into his own hands,” acting Ashdod Mayor Avi Amsalem told Kan.

Tensions between Charedi and secular residents of Ashdod have risen in recent years. In general, images of women are considered immodest in the Charedi community.
