      13 Golani Soldiers Jailed


      13 soldiers from Battalion 51 of the Golani Brigade have been sent to 20 days in prison after refusing to show up for routine security operations in the Golan Heights, it was reported Monday night.

      The soldiers chose to refuse to show up for the operation because a complaint they had filed against their commander for verbal abuse and humiliation had not been dealt with. They have since apologized for their behavior and expressed their desire to remain with the Golani Brigade.
