Israeli policemen arrest an ultra-Orthodox Jewish protester during a demonstration in Ashdod, southern seaport of Israel, Feb. 6, 2014. Hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews in Israel blocked highways and clashed with police on Thursday to protest against a government decision to cut funds to seminary students who avoid military service. The Israeli Supreme Court on Tuesday issued an interim order forcing the government to cut funding to ultra-orthodox seminaries whose students are draft dodgers, the Israeli Court Authority announced in a statement.
