Several hundred protesters from the Peleg Yerushalmi (Jerusalem Faction) and the Eda Haredit demonstrated and blocked traffic at various locations throughout Jerusalem against the decision to perform an autopsy on a one-month-old infant who nearly drowned in a hotel jacuzzi in Ashdod.

The parents of the infant were arrested.

During one of the demonstrations, a bus driver lost his temper and exited his bus with a gun to confront the protesters. He eventually put the weapon back on the bus before going out to confront the protesters again.
