Health minister condemns rock-throwing in Jerusalem targeting medic

Health Minister Yaakov Litzman condemns a rock-throwing incident in Jerusalem’s Mea Shearim ultra-Orthodox neighborhood, which saw a medic lightly injured.

“I strongly condemn the attack on MDA [Magen David Adom] personnel by a handful of residents in Jerusalem,” says Litzman, who heads the Haredi UTJ political party. “This is serious behavior that is contrary to Jewish law and harms those who are performing holy work for the public’s health and security, while endangering themselves, in particular during this time of emergency.”
