Sunday, May 28, 2023, 14:52 Nine Jews were detained on Sunday morning while protesting the activities of Christian missionary organizations who were performing a religious ceremony near the Western Wall. Honenu Attorney Rehavia Piltz, who assisted the detainees, stated, "The protest was legitimate. The police used undue force to push back the protesters. If the protest had been against judicial reform, the police would have treated them completely differently. It is likely that because the protest was not to the liking of the police, the officers allowed themselves to use brutal force. All of the detainees are law-abiding citizens, and none of them have a criminal record. The police brutality was neither comprehensible nor proportional."
