Police raided a yeshiva in the northern West Bank settlement of Rechilim Wednesday, and issued summons to students.

According to a statement released to the press by Honenu, an Israeli Zionist legal aid organization, 30 students from the Pri Ha'aretz yeshiva - the same yeshiva from which 5 Jewish students were recently arrested for alleged involvement in the murder of a Palestinian woman - were summoned for questioning.

Honenu claimed that police illegally entered the yeshiva building.

Police "blatantly violated the provisions of the law," attorney Adi Keidar said in response to the raid. "It should be noted that the students are already terrified after the conduct of the police over the past two months."

Aysha Rabi was murdered in October after having been hit by rocks while driving her car near the Tapuah Barrier in the West Bank. Rabi’s husband, who was beside her in the car, was injured in the attack.

There was testimony from the Palestinian side that Jewish rock throwers had been involved, but no one had been caught until last week.
