Haredim Block Jerusalem Road In Draft Protest

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
March 8, 2018

Ultra orthodox Jews block the entrance toJerusalem during a military draft protest, Thursday, March 8, 2018. Israel has compulsory military service for most Jewish men, but the ultra-Orthodox, whose political parties enjoy an outsized role in the country’s coalition politics, have secured exemptions. Authorities still require ultra-Orthodox men to register for the draft, something to which the protesters gathered Thursday are opposed.
