One year after the murder of teenager Shira Banki, at least 30 suspects were arrested for attempting to disrupt Thursday’s annual Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, which attracted a record 25,000 participants amid unprecedented security.

 

Following Banki’s death at the hands of religious zealot Yishai Schlissel last July, hundreds of heavily-armed police officers from a breadth of units, aided by a helicopter, cracked down on any disruptions, seizing two knives, police said.

 

Hours before the parade began at Liberty Bell Park, police announced that Schlissel – who stabbed Banki, 16, and six others, days after being released from prison for committing a similar crime 10 years earlier – was rearrested for conspiring with his brother to carry out more attacks from prison.
