Hareidim Block Fire Truck in Jerusalem


Firefighters who were called on Thursday night to put out a garbage can which had been set on fire at the Mea Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem were blocked by about 50 hareidim.

The hareidim interfered with the attempts to put out the flames and gathered around the firefighters. They also tried to block the fire truck and prevent the firefighters from leaving the area.
