Israeli ultra-Orthodox Jews clash with police in Jerusalem Al-Quds during a protest against military conscription.

Police say the protesters hurled stones and bottles and set rubbish bins on fire. Police on horseback pushed the protesters back and arrested five people. The protest was in support of an ultra-Orthodox man who refused to appear at a military recruitment center. Israel plans to gradually increase ultra-Orthodox army enlistment. A system of military exemptions for the ultra-Orthodox has bred resentment among Israel's majority, whose sons serve three years.
