Sikrikim Protest Outside Home of Rabbi Shteinman

Several dozen extremist Sikrikim demonstrated on Thursday evening outside the home of Rabbi Aharon Leib Shteinman, a leading figure in the hareidi world.

The protesters called to boycott the elections and held up signs denouncing participation in the elections. A fight broke out between several bystanders and the demonstrators who provoked them. Police subsequently arrived on the scene and dispersed the rioters.
