In documentation obtained by Ynet, the soldier appears to be walking in the neighborhood when many residents start yelling at him "Hardak"—a derogatory term that means "frivolous ultra-Orthodox."

On Sunday, another case of violence against an ultra-Orthodox soldier took place in the neighborhood when local residents hurled insults and expletives at a Haredi soldier who entered a store in the neighborhood, requiring him to take refuge until a police car could take him away from the area.


The rescued soldier refused to file a complaint with the police. In the documentation from the scene, a few ultra-Orthodox crowd around the shop, shouting and even throwing a hat at a policewoman.
