Opponent Sees Active Duty

MK Yossi Sarid of the Citizens Rights Party, one of the foremost and most consistent opponents of the Lebanon war since its outset, is currently serving on reserve duty in south Lebanon at his own request.

A reserve officer, Sarid is accompanying convoys of men and materiel in south Lebanon. “I believe Knesset Members should see and suffer the hell at close quarters,” he was quoted as saying.

After Sunday’s suicide-car-bomb attack which killed 12 Israeli soldiers, Sarid was among those who called for an immediate and total withdrawal from Lebanon.
