Haredi minister, police minister argue in cabinet meeting over lockdown riots

An argument breaks out between Construction and Housing Minister Yaakov Litzman and Public Security Minister Amir Ohana during a cabinet meeting held via videoconference, regarding to ultra-Orthodox riots against efforts to enforce the lockdown.

Litzman, the leader of the Haredi United Torah Judaism party, asks Ohana to explain why the police are going “wild” in Bnei Brak.

Ohana responds by asking Litzman to explain why the local residents are going “wild” themselves.

“The footage will tell you everything,” Litzman retorts.

Ohana then says: “If you want, you have my phone number, we can do this together and not in this forum.”
