Report: Shin Bet meets Hilltop Youth's rabbis

Members of the Jewish Brigade of the Shin Bet Israel Security Agency held an unusual meeting Sunday with rabbis identified with the "hilltop youth" against a background of a relatively high number of recent "price tag" vandalism incidents, after a relatively long respite, according to Channel 2 Television.

Shabak representatives asked Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira, Rabbi Daniel Stavsky and Rabbi Yitzhak Ginzburg to "turn to key figures among the hilltop youth and try to calm the area." It should be noted that a large part of the recent incidents were carried out within the 1949 Armistice Line, due to the fact that most of the youths belonging to the group were removed by administrative orders from Judea and Samaria.
