Justice Minister Tzipi Livni on Sunday criticized a group of soldiers from Israel's elite intelligence gathering unit, 8200, who sent a letter to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, refusing to take part in actions against Palestinians in the West Bank.

Livni wrote on her Facebook page that she is "against refusal to serve from the left- or right-wing, period."

The justice minister stated that there are different ways of voicing opinions and even voicing criticism of the army's actions.

Livni praised the 8200 unit for the "life-saving information that it provides."
