raidPolice during the night (Tuesday-Wednesday, 6 Adar) raided the Ohd Yosef Chai Yeshiva in Yishuv Yitzhar. A 17-year-old talmid was taken into custody. He was taken to Shai (Shomron-Yehuda) Police headquarters and questioned on suspicion of slashing the tires of a military vehicle that was bringing supplies to border police housed in Yitzhar.

Honenu attorney Adi Kedar is representing the youth, with whom he spoke during the predawn hours. The youth denies the allegations leveled against him. Honenu issued a statement decrying the tactics used by police, questioning why they must storm into a yeshiva in the middle of the night.
