A Druze refuser now in prison

Armo Naffa
The Israeli Police arrested 18-year-old, Armo Naffaa from the Palestinian town of Bit Jan in northern Israel, after he refused conscription. Armo Naffaa is a member of the Druze religious community, whose male members are conscripted to the Israeli army. He continues a tradition of Druze refusal to join a military that fights an ethnic war against their own, Palestinian, people.
We shall send you a more detailed update on his case after we will have more information.
Arab Druze Follow-Up Committee issued a press release saluting “the humanitarian and patriotic stance of Naffaa’ who chose imprisonment over being part of an army of occupation”.
