Some 600 ultra-Orthodox demonstrators arrived at the prison to protest the arrest of an ultra-Orthodox man suspected of assaulting a police officer. According to suspicions, he attacked the policeman who was about to arrest him after the ultra-Orthodox man incited against IDF draft.
Many buses arrived at the Sharon Prison compound, which also houses Hadarim Prison. The demonstration, which took place without a permit, was initially conducted quietly, but later, the protesters went down to the road and blocked it. A police force from the Sharon area and the traffic department cleared them and re-opened the road to traffic.
