Following this, a poster was pasted in the streets of Jerusalem with the headline "Major General Mizrachi expels Jews." The poster, or "pashkvil" – a hareidi-religious means of expressing opinions on public affairs through posters – says that "of course the general has many points in his favor but unfortunately in his present post he is also directly responsible for grievous acts. How can we ignore these evil deeds?"
The yeshiva responded by stating that it "is pained, along with the families, by the distancing of their loved ones. It is clear to us that no establishment is free of criticism, if it is constructive criticism – and this includes the security forces… Naturally, the army's representative was invited to the event as part of the warm connection and full cooperation between the IDF and the yeshiva in Hevron."
