Update from Israeli COs: Tamar Alon released, Atalia Ben-Abba imprisoned again


Following Tamar Ze'evi's release last month, who got conscientious objector status as a political refuser after serving more than 100 days in military prison, Tamar Alon has also been released. Alon, refused to be conscripted in November last year, saying that joining the IDF would have contributed to the oppression of the Palestinian people. She has served six terms in military prison and spent 130 days in total behind bars.

Meanwhile, another conscientious objector, Atalia Ben-Abba, who has been refusing to serve in the IDF and take part in the occupation, was imprisoned again. This is Atalia's third imprisonment, by the end of which she will have completed 80 days in total behind bars.
