Ultra-Orthodox extremists have caused hundreds of thousands of shekels in damages to Jerusalem’s light rail during recent protests against a new planned route for the train, Channel 12 reports.

In one of the protests, participants attacked one Arab worker with an axe and a second employee had his leg broken and was shot by an air rifle, the network says.
