Four Israeli police officers refused to take part in the upcoming Gaza Strip withdrawal. Quoting security sources, Israel Radio said Tuesday that two police officers were discharged after they failed to take part in a drill for evacuating Gaza settlers. Another officer plans to resign his commission to protest the planned pullout, while a border police conscript also has been discharged for voicing opposition. At least 40 military personnel face disciplinary hearings for saying they would refuse to evacuate settlers.
