Bnei Brak mayor, police commander say they’ve agreed on plan to restore calm

Bnei Brak Mayor Avraham Rubinstein and Deputy Police Commissioner David Bitan meet and say they have agreed on a plan to restore the calm in the city, which has seen widespread riots by extremist ultra-Orthodox protesters decrying the enforcement of lockdown rules.

“We will definitely not allow marginal factions to tarnish the city and harm our fabric of life,” Rubinstein says.

During the meeting, it was agreed that “anarchy” should be prevented but calm should be restored with “moderate actions,” according to a statement.
