Apparently 10 young Israeli Jews have declined compulsory military service as per this interview on ABC Radio National yesterday:
Israeli forces are reported to be calling up more reservists to fight in the Gaza conflict.
Some of them are already in action on the ground, but the Israeli defence force has denied they are escalating the war to a 'third phase' -- an all-out push on Gaza City.
Like many countries around the world, Israel has compulsory military service. Once you leave high school you are technically required to serve in the army. For men that can be up for three years, for women it's closer to 18 months.
However, since the 1970s some people have resisted their military service They are known as shministim, which is Hebrew for '12th graders'.
Maya Wind is due to report for military service on Wednesday and is expecting to be sent to jail for refusing to serve.
