A counselor at a yeshiva high school in a West Bank settlement has been accused of sexually abusing two students, as well as possibly carrying out similar acts against students at a separate institution where he also taught.

As first reported on the Kipa news website, two students at a boarding school in the settlement gave testimony earlier this month that the counselor touched their genitals when waking them up in the morning. They also claim that he told them to perform sexual acts for his own gratification. Three other students also gave testimony supporting that of the complainants.

The counselor was responsible for educational activities during student leisure time and for waking the students up in the morning.
