A number of Givati Brigade soldiers reportedly attempted to abandon their posts on Saturday evening in attempt to refuse taking part in evacuating the Amona outpost.

According to the Jerusalem Post's sister paper Maariv on Saturday night, soldiers told their commanders that evacuations were not among their duties. However, they eventually agreed to return to their posts in order to assist indirectly in protecting roadways while the evacuation would take place.
