Saturday, January 5, 2019, 21:22 Under the heading, “The residents of Yehuda and Shomron (Yosh) have rights too!”, approximately 1,000 demonstrators have gathered opposite the residence of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in protest of the detention of minors by the GSS. Participants of the protest include Rabbi Yehdua Gilad, the Head of Yeshivat Ma’aleh Gilboa and a former Knesset Member from the Labor Party, Yossi Degan, the Head of the Shomron Regional Council, Yisrael Ganz, the Head of the Binyamin Regional Council, Eliyahu Libman, the Head of the Kiryat Arba Local Council, and additional rabbis and other public figures.
The protest began at approximately 21:00 and the first speaker was Rabbi Gilad.
A video clip of Rabbi Chaim Druckman was screened at the protest: “I am turning to the Prime Minister with a request from the depths of my heart to order the immediate release of the minors, the three youths detained by the GSS. If there is any problem, it would be appropriate to interrogate them as anyone is interrogated in the State of Israel, but by no means whatsoever, not in the dungeons of the GSS.”

Rabbi Krakover, the Rabbi of Kochav HaShahar, called for the Jewish Department of the GSS to be stripped of its authority due to their inability to use it properly.
