Auerbach & Satmar Savages Smash Windows On Egged Bus In Kikar Shabbos
This time the Eida HaChareidis a Satmar offshoot joined in calling today's protest!
Protests organized by the Peleg Faction along with the Eida Chareidis resumed on Thursday afternoon, at Kikar Shabbos and in Bnei Brak.
As the protesters grow in numbers, they shut down Kikar Shabbos in Yerushalayim. In this instance, they surrounded and blocked an Egged bus and smashed some of its windows. This occurred on Shivtei Yisrael/Meah Shearim. They claim the bus lightly tapped one of their protesters who was on a bicycle, trying to block the street.
The protests seen in the past week are becoming increasingly violent. Protesters on Shivtei Yisrael Street on Thursday afternoon also shut down light rail service, creating additional hardship for persons who often shop and do Shabbos-related errands on Thursday after work.
