Watch: Police Continue To Target Charedim And Ignore Secular Violations Of Coronavirus Regulations

JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Police in Israel have come under broad criticism for their seemingly selective enforcement of coronavirus regulations. Chareidim- even those in secular areas-  have come under much closer scrutiny from police and in many cases are detained and arrested for even the most minor infractions.

In one case this week, police arrested a young woman near the Machane Yehuda market for not covering her nose with her mask. The woman spoke to them in English but they did not attempt to speak English and detained her for questioning after she refused to identify herself. The police later claimed that the woman did indeed understand Hebrew during questioning but had been detained because she allegedly tried to attack the police officers. However the fact that she was singled out despite the fact that other secular people in the area were not even wearing masks demonstrates the selective enforcement which continues unabated.
