The two lieutenants notified their commanding officer at a base in Kastina that they will not assist in making preparations for the forced expulsion of Gaza’s Jewish residents.

Their commander accepted the lieutenants’ decision, but notified them that they would not be eligible for a higher rank.

Another lieutenant, Yigal Vanunu, who serves at a trucking facility in Bet Nabala, recently notified his commander that he would not participate in the expulsion of Jews from their homes. Vanunu was court-martialed and sentenced to 21 days in jail.

Earlier this week, two soldiers training as field commanders notified their commanding officer that they would not participate in the impending expulsion.

Over 20 reserve soldiers have informed Arutz-7 that they will not be reporting for duty on Sunday in order not to serve as replacements to enable regular duty soldiers to be involved in the expulsion process.
