    Israeli police were filmed knocking a woman off her feet by firing a powerful stream of smelly water during a mass protest.

    A short video depicts Israeli policemen using water cannons to disperse a group of Ultra-Orthodox Jews protesting in Jerusalem, when a woman is seen crossing the street, whilst trying to evade the torrent of "skunk water".

    Unfortunately, she attracted the attention of the skunk cannon operator, who directed the stream of water at her, sending her flying across the street.

    It is unclear if the woman was participating in the demonstration or was an innocent bystander just going about her own business, though the protestors are seen making signs to the police suggesting that the woman was indeed a mere pedestrian.

    Some 35 Ultra-Orthodox protestors were arrested during the demonstration, being charged with "disrupting public order, blocking traffic, and attacking civilians and police officers".

    The demonstrations were organized by Rabbi Shmuel Auerbach, one of the leaders of Israel's Ultra-Orthodox Jewish community, to protest the country's strict conscription laws for allegedly offending the "dignity of the Torah".
