Police disperse mass Haredi wedding in Beit Shemesh; clashes reported

After several days of clashes between police forces and members of the ultra-Orthodox community protesting lockdown enforcement, cops have broken up yet another mass Haredi wedding in Beit Shemesh.

Hundreds attended the illegal event at a local synagogue, and started throwing various objects at the officers and setting trash cans on fire, Hebrew-language media reports.

Police called in a water cannon to help disperse the crowd, according to the reports.
