      It's Unthinkable that Hareidi Soldiers are Attacked


      Chief of Staff Benny Gantz of the Israel Defense Forces said, Monday, that it was unthinkable that hareidi-religious soldiers would be afraid to visit their homes for fear of being attacked. Responding to recent assaults on soldiers during a speech before the Israel Manufacturers' Association, he expressed hope that steps would be taken to eliminate the phenomenon.

      Gantz said that soldiers protect all of Israel's citizens and not one particular sector or another, so they should be treated with respect.
