Sabbath Parking Lot Protests Return to Jerusalem

Hareidi religious protesters returned to the parking lot near Jaffa Gate in Jerusalem on the Sabbath to rally against use of the facility on the Sabbath.

The city began operating the multi-storied “Karta” parking lot on the Sabbath two years ago, a move that has drawn fierce anger from mostly anti-Zionist hareidi leaders.
