Israel’s Central Elections Committee fined the Bayit Yehudi party for using Israel Defense Forces troops in its propaganda.

Elyakim Rubinstein, the committee chairman, on Wednesday ordered the rightist Jewish Home party to pay just over $1,000 for a poster in which IDF soldiers are depicted carrying the party’s logo and the slogan: “loving the country, serving the country,” according to NRG, the news site of the daily Ma’ariv.

Part of the fine will cover the legal expenses of the complainant, the general secretary of the left-wing Peace Now movement, Yariv Oppenheimer, NRG reported.
