Why No Incarceration of Leftist Soldiers by IDF??

IDF Soldiers Who Refused Mission Removed from Combat


“OC Central Command Maj.Gen. Yair Naveh ordered that three soldiers of an elite IDF unit who refused to participate in an operation in Jenin to nab Islamic Jihad fugitives be transferred to administrative positions outside their unit and that the unit commander be ousted from military service.”

Prior to setting out on the mission, the four soldiers informed their commander that they were unable to participate in the raid, stating they feared for their lives. They explained to their commander that their feelings stemmed from a recent operation they participated in which was carried out under constant Palestinian gunfire. While the rest of their unit participated in the Jenin operation the four remained behind.”

Why were they not arrested and thrown in the brig like those who refused to take part in the evictions from Gush Katif and the Shomron Towns? MB
