MK Yariv Levin (Likud) on Sunday slammed Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to sever all ties with the Har Bracha hesder yeshiva, and accused Barak of prioritizing political considerations over the soldiers' welfare. The contribution of hesder yeshiva students in general, and specifically the Har Bracha students, was of the utmost importance, Levin said. Levin called on Barak to reconsider the decision, which "may cause irreversible damage."
