Police this afternoon made at least six arrests after persons attacked a chareidi IDF soldier.
However, this time the police were ready for the attack, as multiple undercover officers had been stationed in the area awaiting this type of incident that has become a common occurrence in the Meah Shearim area.
Police are continuing to operate in the area, seeking additional suspects.
Police decided to station the extra officers in light of the increase in attacks against chareidi soldiers.
Among those arrested was a child.
