Israel: Again Prison Term for Conscientious Objector Or Ben-David

by New Profile

(16.11.2009) After completing her first prison term, Or Ben-David, signatory of the 2009 high school seniors letter, was sentenced earlier today (16 Nov.) to 20 more days in the military prison for women (no. 400) in Tzrifin. This is her second term in prison and the third time she has been tried and sentenced for her refusal to enlist. She is due to be released from prison on 3 December and is likely to be imprisoned again soon afterwards. Her address in prison is:

Or Ben-David, Military ID 6054025, Military Prison No. 400, Military Postal Code 02447, IDF, Israel, Fax: ++972-3-9579389

Since the prison authorities often block mail from reaching imprisoned objectors, we also recommend you to send them your letters of support and encouragement via e-mail to shministim10(at), and they will be printed out and delivered during visits.
