זו תורה וזו שכרה
The incident took place on Rechov Rabbi Akiva in Bnei Brak, where dozens of “Peleg Yerushalmi” Bochrim had gathered to protest.
According to multiple published sources, an IDF soldier attempted to disperse the crowd standing in the street blocking traffic – and as can seen in the attached video – sprayed tear gas at the crowd.
Around a minute later, the soldier is physically grabbed in a sweeping choke hold, thrown to the sidewalk and is kicked and beaten by a group of Bochrim.
An unidentified person comes to his rescue and begins dragging him to safety – but not before another Yeshiva Bochur punches the soldier clear in the face.
Police have launched an investigation, promising to prosecute anyone involved to the fullest extent of the law.
It should be noted that on Wednesday night a Frum IDF Soldier was attacked with rocks and bottles by a group of Peleg Yerushalmi protesters on the same street. The soldier on Wednesday night had recently been discharged from the army, was wearing civilian clothing, but was recognized by the angry crowds. Police came and rescued him after he managed to barricade himself in a locked room.
More than 30 Bochrim from the “Peleg Yerushalmi” were arrested on Thursday in addition to the more than 50 yesterday.
