Thousands of ultra-Orthodox Jewish protesters gathered at the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City amid a significant police presence on Friday, March 8 (International Women's Day), to denounce a prayer demonstration organized by the Women of the Wall group. Clashes between the groups reportedly left several wounded. A heightened security presence and increased tensions are to be expected near the Western Wall over the coming hours.
Individuals in Jerusalem are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
