Two ultra-Orthodox men are arrested for attacking an IDF soldier in the city of Beit Shemesh, reports in Hebrew-language media say.
Police were called to rescue the soldier, who was being attacked by a group of ultra-Orthodox men on the city’s Yehudah Hanasi Street.
A video of the incident shows dozens of ultra-Orthodox men shouting “Nazi” at officers.
The attack comes on the heels of widespread protests by members of the ultra-Orthodox community against Israel’s compulsory military service.
