Early Wednesday morning, police officers arrived at the dormitory of the Chabad Yeshiva in Tzfas, and pulled a 19-year-old student from his bed.
The policemen, dressed in civilian clothes, entered the boy’s room, woke him, and arrested him in his pajamas.
According to eyewitnesses, only after he was taken outside of the yeshiva building, he was presented with an arrest warrant. He was arrested for being listed as AWOL from military service.
Activists dealing with similar cases said that this was the first time that a yeshiva student had been arrested inside the yeshiva, and that so far, in similar cases, they had avoided entering and carrying out arrests in the yeshiva area.
