Top ultra-Orthodox rabbi Chaim Kanievsky will tomorrow issue a call for extremist factions to stop their violent protests against the enforcement of lockdown rules, Channel 12 news reports.

The report says Kanievsky will call for calm and urge the public to avoid riots such as those seen in recent days in Haredi areas.

It adds that the driver of the bus that was torched yesterday by a mob in Bnei Brak has been invited to meet Rabbi Kanievsky and receive a blessing from him.
