Thirteen soldiers from Battalion 51 of the Golani Brigade of the IDF have been sent to military prison for 20 days after refusing to show up for routine security operations in the Golan Heights, Israel Radio reported.

The soldiers refused to show up for the operation because of a complaint they had filed against their commander for verbal abuse and humiliation that had not been dealt with.

An IDF Spokesman responded to say that the Battalion's operational readiness was not affected due to the event.
