The Israel Defense Force chief of staff criticized a group of reservists who refuse to serve in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Controversy is growing in Israel after a group of more than 50 reserve officers and soldiers took out ads in weekend newspapers voicing their refusal. Lt. Gen. Shaul Mofaz criticized the group Tuesday, saying, “The authors of the letter do not represent reserve officers and soldiers who understand their mission very well and work day and night for the shared aim of providing security to Israel.”
