(Worthy News) - Four Israelis were arrested in the southern city of Arad on Saturday night after violent clashes broke out between the city’s secular and ultra-Orthodox residents.
Long-simmering tensions between residents who oppose the influx of ultra-Orthodox into the city and the local Haredi community came to a head in riots that saw both sides spitting at each other, clashing with police, and some Haredi demonstrators rolling burning tires at the home of secular residents.
Four demonstrators were arrested in connection with the incident, according to police. Two of the detained were ultra-Orthodox and two were secular, according to Channel 10. [ Source (Read More...) ]
