For the third straight week, hundreds protested in Yerushalayim against the opening of the Karta parking lot near the Old City on Shabbosos, with no end in sight to the month-old problem. Hundreds shouting “Shabbos” gathered at a central intersection in Meah She’arim and then approached the parking lot opposite Shaar Yaffo. Police officers, some dressed in riot gear, shoved them back. There were no injuries reported.
The protests were organized by the Eida Hachareidus to protest the chillul Shabbos caused by the opening of the lot to accommodate weekend visitors to the Old City.
