Israel: Conscientious Objectors Tamar Alon and Tamar Ze’evi imprisoned

(21.11.2016) November 16, Tamar Ze'evi and Tamar Alon declared their refusal to serve in the occupation at the IDF’s Tel Hashomer induction base outside Tel Aviv. A military tribunal sentenced both to two days in prison the same day.

When they completed two days behind the bars, they were tried again immediately and sentenced to 7 days imprisonment each this time. After this, they will refuse again and probably be sentenced to another term in prison.
