Effigy at the protest
Effigy at the protest News 24

Haredi extremists have long dehumanized haredi IDF soldiers by portraying them as pigs, and some even smeared feces on the door of a haredi soldier in June, but on Tuesday night the incitement reached a new high during a Jerusalem protest.

In the massive anti-enlistment protest on Sarei Yisrael Street in the capital, a life-sized effigy of a haredi soldier was displayed by the protesters - except that instead of a human head, it bore the head and face of a dog.

Four suspects were arrested on suspicion of breaching public order during the protest, after not following orders to clear the scene when the demonstration was declared as illegal.
