Security forces planned on demolishing the Od Yosef Hai yeshiva in the settlement of Yitzhar in Samaria, Army Radio reported Wednesday.

The IDF military prosecutor delayed the appeal by the yeshiva after the court ordered the demolishing two months ago.

The court claimed that the yeshiva was built illegally.

According to defense officials, the demolition will be carried out due to Palestinian complaints and extremist declarations by yeshiva head Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira.
