|“I’m writing you from prison.”|
“I go on refusing to enlist and getting again and again imrisoned, in protest of the IDF’s role in the occupation, hoping to contribute to a more open and honest discussion of the alternatives for Israel’s future.”
A quick update to let you know that conscientious objector Yasmin Ricci-Yahav arrived last Monday at Israeli Army’s Tel Hashomer induction center and announced for the third time her refusal to enlist. Upon her imprisonment, she said:
“My name is Yasmin Ricci Yahav, I am 18 years old, and today I will declare my refusal to enlist in the IDF for the third time. To date I have spent 30 days in military prison, and I expect to be sentenced for a third prison term. I continue to refuse to enlist in protest of the IDF’s role in the occupation and with the hope that my choice will contribute to a more open and honest discussion of the alternatives for Israel’s future.”
