Canadian-Israeli woman jailed for not serving in IDF

A woman with Canadian and Israeli citizenship is under arrest and jailed in Israel allegedly for failing to fulfill her military service.  Yana Gorelik traveled from Canada to Israel two weeks ago to attend her cousin's wedding and visit family, the Toronto Star reported.
Instead, she was arrested and has been held in an Israeli army prison since then without bail.
Israel is accusing Gorelik, a 30-year-old with dual Canadian-Israeli citizenship, of deserting the Israeli military after moving to Toronto with her family when she was 17.
