Pacifist Soldier Shoots Self in the Foot to Duck Combat


Arutz Sheva has learned that an artillery soldier shot himself in the foot to avoid combat, Wednesday at a base in southern Israel.

The soldier was outspoken in his opposition to training before operations. He told his officers that he did not want to take part in operations and wanted to be released from the Israel Defense Forces. He also explained that he wanted to benefit from the vehicle the army would bring him as a disabled veteran.
