Police recorded offering to turn blind eye to prayer against COVID rules – The Jerusalem Post (politics first, health of all citizens second)

A police commander in the ultra-Orthodox city of Modiin Illit made an offer this week to an influential individual within the extremist Jerusalem Faction group that the police would ignore mass prayer indoors as long as the congregation pretended to disperse.
The revelation comes following allegations against the Jerusalem police that similar deals had been struck with extremist hassidic communities in Mea Shearim during the course of the recent holiday season.
