Hundreds of Haredim in Meah Shearim rioted on Thursday, after a young Haredi man was arrested for refusing to show up for the draft.
The Haredim began throwing rocks at the police, burning garbage in the streets and blocking traffic.
Five rioters were detained by police after the riot.
All Israeli citizens are subject to arrest if they don’t show up when called for the draft.
Last week JewishPress.com reported on the 30,000 Haredim who received their permanent exemptions from the draft as a result of the new draft law.
