Some 200 ultra-Orthodox have been arrested during clashes between officers and ultra-Orthodox Jews at Mount Meron

Police say those arrested “attacked officers, threw rocks toward them and forcibly resisted dispersing.”

The clashes came after people broke into Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai’s grave site at Mount Meron, which emergency ordinances sharply limited access to during Lag B’Omer to prevent spreading of the coronavirus.
