"IRS Inspectors Attacked in Meah Shearim 
While visiting Havakouk St. in Meah Shearim, IRS inspectors were attacked by an angry mob, yelling and throwing objects [at the inspectors]. The inspectors conducting their tax investigation, which involved closing a number of stores in the neighborhood, enraged the protesters. Their anger was directed against the 'Zionist Establishment' for targeting the neighborhood residents. A commotion ensued, garbage cans were burned and the area was blocked off from traffic. The investigators called the police, and a patrol car came to their rescue." 
0202 Editor's Notes:
 An ultra-orthodox Haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem.
 This is not the first time violence has broken out in such an incident. Last Thursday, IRS inspectors who visited the Meah Shearim market were received with shouts and stone-throwing, until they were forced to leave the neighborhood.
