A Nahal Brigade soldier was sentenced to 20 days military incarceration after reportedly refusing to take part in the arrest of a group of Breslav hasidim who had infiltrated Joseph's Tomb in Nablus in order to pray there earlier this week, Channel 2 reported Thursday.

Channel 2 quoted the IDF Spokesperson as saying that the incident was not ideologically motivated, but rather that the soldier had refused to comply with the order out of "laziness."
