Family of woman injured in Haredi protest defends culprits: ‘They didn’t mean harm’


The family of a woman who was hit and seriously injured by a blazing dumpster sent rolling down a street by Haredi extremists during demonstrations in Jerusalem last week has defended those responsible, saying they meant to block a road and “did not mean to kill anyone.”

While Mirel Dzalovsky, a 40-year-old mother of 10, remains unconscious and on a ventilator at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, her relatives said the rioters “did something awful” but stressed that they were not looking for someone to blame.

“They were not trying to harm anyone. They were trying to block a street as part of a protest,” the family told Channel 12.


  1. Under Torah law, if Chas v shalom she dies, the perpetrators must flee to the nearest ir miklat. Perhaps some of the relatives will be less forgiving.

  2. This is sinking really low. Let's look at it rationally. The rioters went out to riot. They acted intentionally to cause damage in the public area. They did not consider the consequences of their uncontrolled behaviour. But hey, they didn't actually mean to hurt anyone!
    This is am chacham v'navon at its finest.

  3. No need for threats.
    I saw elsewhere that family members are themselves well-known supporters of Peleg.
