The Israeli Police kidnapped Amro Naffa’, 18, the son of Arab Member of Israeli Knesset, Sa’id Naffa’, after he refused to go for compulsory military service, rejecting any part of a military that occupies and oppresses the Palestinian people.Naffa’ is from Beit Jin in the occupied Galilee; Israel will be sending him to court and will likely impose a prison term against him.

His four brothers were previously detained and imprisoned for refusing enlistment in the Israeli military.

The Arab Druze Follow-Up Committee issued a press release saluting “the humanitarian and patriotic stance of Naffa’ who chose imprisonment over being part of an army of occupation’.

There are hundreds of Arabs, Druze and Jewish-Israelis who have been imprisoned for rejecting the compulsory military services, citing their right to refuse to serve in an army that occupies another nation, steals it lands and oppresses it people.
