An IDF combat engineer reservist has been jailed for refusing to serve in Gaza, Channel 10 reported on Monday afternoon. According to the report, the 35-year-old soldier had been called for reserve service and took part in training at the Tze'elim base. When he was told that he would soon join the IDF troops fighting Hamas in the Strip, the soldier told his commanders he was not prepared to take part in the Gaza operation, with which he does not agree. After a brief military trial, the commanders sentenced the soldier to 14 days in military incarceration, the television channel reported.
