Students at the Or Menachem yeshiva in Tzfat told reporters that police only responded to a graffiti attack on the grave of the Talmudic Rabbi Halafta when they believed the media would be covering the response.

“At first, the officer I got on the phone tried to string me along, until I told her that the media was already covering the attack,” one student told the Chabad-linked website. “When I said that, they sent a squad car to investigate.
