On Sunday evening, March 19, in Ramat Gan was a stormy demonstration of ultra-Orthodox protesting against the detention of rioters trying to break the course of the Jerusalem marathon.
Participants of the rally in Ramat Gan tried to block traffic on the corner of Jabotinsky and Ben Gurion. The police declared the demonstration illegal and detained five of its members.
The reason for the demonstrations was the arrest in Jerusalem of a young man, close to the head of the radical wing of the ultra-Orthodox Rabbi Auerbach. After the detention it turned out that this young man is also a deserter, he was sentenced to 20 days in military prison.
