Ynet – Four IDF soldiers from a haredi unit in the Kfir Brigade were sentenced to 10 days in jail Thursday morning, after posting images on Facebook opposing Israeli military restraint and calling for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to let them “annihilate terrorists.”

Several posted a similar image to the four that were jailed, which read, “The battalion demands revenge.”
