Deputy Education Minister Meir Porush (United Torah Judaism) was attacked this morning in the city of Beit Shemesh by dozens of haredim opposing his yeshiva student IDF recruitment policy.

Porush, who lives in Jerusalem, came to pray at the house of his Rebbe in Beit Shemesh. At the service's conclusion he left the house and walked toward his car, and was attacked by local residents who cursed and chased him until he managed to escape.
