The battle against recruiting Haredi Jews to the IDF included many demonstrations in front of the homes of the recruiters and Haredi IDF officers. It has now been decided by the Attorney General of Israel Avichai Mandelblit to forbid these demonstrations.

In a letter published today by Mandelblit’s deputy and Israel’s State Attorney, the two claim that such demonstrations are illegal and the police cannot allow them. “It is impossible to grant a license to these demonstrations,” they wrote. “We request that in addition to dispersing the demonstrations, the police will also enforce the law against the protesters who do not comply with the dispersion orders.”

“We can see an increase in the battle against Haredi soldiers,” they continued. “Which is expressed by hanging puppets of Haredi soldiers with a rope around their necks.”

The letter also mentioned the damage and harm that is done to the Haredi soldiers themselves.
