Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan visited Camp Sucker ("Frier") in Jerusalem on Monday to lend support to protesters demanding that the IDF broaden its base of inductees by drafting more within minority communities, Army Radio reported.
The Camp Sucker movement is led primarily by the Forum for Military Service Equality (Forum La’shivyon Ba’netel.) The group has led many protests around the country in protest of what they view as discrimination against those who serve in the IDF.Dagan stated that "the uneven distribution of the societal burden is unsustainable and harms the fabric of Israeli society."
