St.-Sgt. Itamar Shapira, a reservist in the Nahal Battalion, was sentenced to 14 days in a military prison on Monday for refusing orders to take part in the war in Lebanon, marking the third such case since hostilities in the North began. Shapira argued that military operations only escalates the situation and is a crime against both the citizens of Lebanon and the citizens of Israel.
