Haredi extremists in the Meah Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem on Saturday night lit bonfires and threw an effigy of an IDF soldier into one of them.

One video shows haredi children throwing Israeli flags into the bonfires.

During last year's Lag Baomer celebrations, one of the children was "honored" by being selected to throw the Israeli flag into the bonfire, while his friends celebrated and cheered him on.

On Purim, too, haredi extremists incite and provoke, hanging effigies of haredi IDF soldiers as if they were "the wicked Haman."

Israel Police removed the hanging effigies.
