An Israeli officer refused to join the military service in Lebanon’s second war and was sentenced to 28 days in prison to register the first such case in the ongoing war on Lebanon.

During the trial the officer said that the war contradicts the ethics and values according to which he was raised.

The officer’s girlfriend stated that he had called the army officials and notified them about his reluctance to rejoin the army.


A spokesman for the Israeli "There is a limit" movement, which encourages soldiers not to join Israeli military adventures, said that more than 10 soldiers have contacted the movement declaring their reluctance to join the army’s offensive into Lebanon.

For his part, the Israeli army spokesman said that the army finds this move very dangerous mainly during wartime and the officer’s punitive measures will be discussed once he completes his sentence.
