Arrests in Attempt to Block Route 1

Hundreds of Land of Israel activists tried to block the Tel Aviv-Jerusalem highway on Sunday afternoon in protest of the morning's detention of Rabbi Ya'akov Yosef in connection of his endorsement of the scholarship in the book Torat Hamelech, which concerns Jewish law on the question of the priority of Jewish soldiers' lives versus killing of enemy civilians in time of war.

Three demonstrators were arrested. Police are using riot-control measures in an attempt to disperse the demonstrators.
