Shin Bet: Reports over plans to seek revenge after yeshiva attack false

Reports over the last few days concerning a plan to seek revenge after the terror attack at Mercaz Harav Yeshiva were found to be baseless, the Shin Bet announced on Saturday after ending an investigation into the matter. The Shin Bet began investigating after various media outlets reported that extreme right-wing groups were planning organized attacks against Palestinians after an east Jerusalem resident entered the learning facility and murdered eight students last Thursday. Earlier Saturday, Sheikh Raed Salah, the head of the Islamic Movement's northern branch, claimed that high-raking Israeli officials were plotting to kill him.
