More than 10,000 people are set to participate in a large protest after ultra-Orthodox Jews clashed with Israeli police near East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

People are expected to protest the exclusion of women as well as violence against girls and women.

The clashes erupted in Beit Shemesh after religious Jewish people called for the segregation of men and women.

Beit Shemesh has become a focus of friction between secular and ultra-Orthodox Jews demanding strict gender segregation and modest dress for women.

An Israeli officer was injured in the clashes and several protesters were consequently arrested.

The latest clashes came as police attempted to remove one of the several signs in the town ordering gender segregation.

In reaction, at least 300 of the religious residents pelted police with stones and eggs and set rubbish bins on fire.

Although only 10 percent of Israel’s mostly Jewish population consists of religious Jews, their population is rapidly growing.
