Four IDF soldiers from the Golani Brigade were sentenced to military prison Friday after they staged a protest over the removal of West Bank outposts Thursday.
Following a ceremony in which the soldiers received their brigade's beret, signifying the end of their training, a number of soldiers removed their uniform shirts to reveal t-shirts they had printed. The shirts read: "Golani fights enemies, [it doesn't] expel Jews." Photographs of the soldiers wearing the custom shirts were distributed to the media, although without their knowledge, Army Radio reported.

The IDF Spokesperson said it was preparing a statement on the matter but could not confirm the details.
