Hundreds of haredi men and youths took to major roads and intersections Monday morning to protest the arrest of four yeshiva students who have been arrested for failing to report to IDF recruitment offices for preliminary enlistment processing.

Protests were staged in or close to Jerusalem, Ashdod, the Bar Ilan interchange and other locations in which the protestors tried to block traffic arteries, and routes 443 and 444 are both experiencing heavy traffic as a result.

The police have advised commuters to find alternative routes to work.
