Five female soldiers serving as lookouts on the Gaza border were sentenced Monday to 10 days’ imprisonment after refusing to paint the war room where they serve.

As part of a project to improve Gaza border infrastructure, the soldiers were ordered to paint a mobile shelter adjacent to their war room and the five refused to do so, claiming that there were writings on the wall that represented the unit.

The IDF Spokesman’s Office said in response:

“In the case in question, a number of female soldiers blocked the painting of the wall and violated the order of their commander. After it was made clear to them that if they continued to prevent the painting it would lead to disciplinary action, the soldiers chose to continue preventing it. The female soldiers were tried and sentenced to ten days in prison. The IDF is constantly working to improve living conditions in the various bases and will continue to do so.”

  1. Ten days in jail for refusing to paint a room is a harsh punishment for a nothing infraction, albeit one involving insubordination. Confining them to base and not allowing them to go on leave for a weekend would have been a more fitting punishment. The IDF bullies its soldiers, but slaps the PA and Hamas on the wrist.

  2. The IDF, an officially Jewish army, no less, is the only country in the world that recruits women – to spite Hashem and His Torah. And they still expect siyatta Dishmaya.
