Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman spoke of the riots that took place today (Tuesday) during his visit to the Mea Shearim neighborhood of Jerusalem.

"While our best sons risk their lives in defending the homeland, an extremist, violent, and anti-Zionist group is trying to thwart the recruitment of haredim into the army," Liberman tweeted.

As mentioned, dozens of haredim demonstrated at the entrance to a residential building on Avraham Slonim Street in Mea Shearim, following the arrival of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.

A police force summoned to the street at the request of the security team dispersed the protesters gathered in the area and accompanied the Defense Minister's convoy. After the convoy left, the rioters began throwing stones and objects at the policemen. An 8-year-old girl standing nearby was slightly hurt by a stone.
