Early Morning Raid on Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in Yitzhar

JewishPress Logo

General Security Services forces raided the yeshiva Od Yosef Chai in the Samaria-region community of Yitzhar in the early hours of Wednesday morning, detaining one student for failing to appear in court. Students at the scene claim that after the young man was detained, agents continued searching throughout the dormitory, finally returning to the detainee and claiming they had not recognized him because one of the agents failed to bring his eyeglasses.

A representative of Honenu, which provides legal assistance to soldiers and civilians in legal situations due to defending themselves against Arab aggression, or due to their activism for Israel, said the police have performed dozens of raids on the yeshiva in the last few years because of the high concentration of activists studying there.
