Israel: Tamar Alon and Tamar Zeevi imprisoned again!

Tamar Alon and Tamar Ze'evi, two conscientious objectors from Israel, were imprisoned again today. This is Alon and Ze'evi's third imprisonment following their declaration of refusal to serve in the occupation on November 16.

Following today's tribunal, Ze'evi and Alon, who have already spent 8 days behind the bars, will spend 10 more days in prison. After this, they will refuse again and probably be sentenced to another term in prison.
