The newspaper quoted Amir Vadmani, head of the Manpower Directorate’s Planning and Research Department, who said in a parliamentary debate that more than 20 cases of minorities who refused orders or simply did not report to the ranks during the war were recorded.

In May, that Palestinian enclave, where more than two million people live, suffered 11 days of intense Israeli airstrikes, in which more than 250 people were killed and hundreds were wounded.

According to the World Bank, those attacks caused damages valued at 570 million dollars.

A recent joint study by the Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor and the Global Institute for Water, Environment and Health revealed that 97 percent of the water in that territory is contaminated.

A month later, the International Committee of the Red Cross warned that 80 percent of Gaza’s population live much of their lives in the dark, with only 10-12 hours of electricity per day.
