Beit Shemesh: Haredi-religious war escalates
I don’t have much clue about what’s going on here, but since it involves children and attacks at schools I can say it’s escalated beyond control no matter how righteous any side in the matter thinks they are they need to stop this. Children and schools should not be attacked.
Stones were thrown Tuesday afternoon toward the “Orot Neriya” boys’ school in Beit Shemesh – likely by a group of extreme haredim opposed to the Orot educational network’s girls’ school.
One of the stones thrown into the school yard hit a student in the leg. The boy received medical care. The stone thrower escaped, and a police force dispatched to the area failed to locate him.
Shortly afterwards, a group of haredim approached the “Orot Banot” girls’ school and, according to the girls’ parents, began swearing at the students as they left the building. A violent clash erupted between the parties, forcing the police to intervene.
