Two police officers were lightly wounded late Wednesday when they were hit by rocks thrown by ultra-Orthodox demonstrators in Jerusalem.
The demonstrators were protesting IDF enlistment by some Haredim.
Dozens of rioters threw stones in central Jerusalem, according to Israel Radio. Shivtei Israel road was closed to traffic due to the disturbances, which included the burning of public garbage bins.
Police said they arrested one demonstrator caught throwing stones.
A similar demonstration was held in the ultra-Orthodox section of Beit Shemesh, a city southwest of Jerusalem, where protestors set garbage bins alight on Nahar Hayarden Street.
Also Wednesday, shots were fired at a car on Noam Elimelech Street in the city of Bnei Brak, a major ultra-Orthodox population center. No one was hurt in the incident. There are no indications the incident was related to the protests in other Haredi towns. Police have launched an investigation.
