Yeshiva attack videos on YouTube


Videos showing the aftermath of the terror attack at the Mercaz HaRav yeshiva were uploaded to YouTube.


Someone with the moniker AtiyaRachel posted the three videos, but the Prime Minister’s Office was responsible for the uploads, according to an article Thursday on Ha’aretz’s business and technology Web site, The Marker.


A one-minute video showing graphic and bloody footage of the Jerusalem yeshiva’s study hall had more than 5,300 viewings and 88 responses as of Wednesday night.

YouTube flagged a second similar but shorter video as being unsuitable for viewers under 18. The third is similar to the other two videos.


According to The Marker, a source said officials in Jerusalem will upload videos following any future terrorist attacks.
