IDF military police tried to arrest an 18-year-old chareidi girl for not reporting to military service. According to a Ladaat.net report, the story is confirmed but the parents, members of the Chabad tzibur, do not want their name released.
The parents were shocked when military police arrived at their home. They first thought police came to the wrong house but quickly learned this was not so. Police explained the daughter is listed as AWOL since she failed to report for military service.
The parents report that tried in earnest to persuade police their child is a frum woman and will not be serving in the IDF. Police explained these are the orders that they received and it is not in their jurisdiction to ignore their orders. Baruch Hashem the young lady in question was not home at the time.
The parents add they are quite confident that the paperwork was completed by their daughter as it should to permit her to declare she is not serving as she is frum and they believe the unfortunate incident was the result of a bureaucratic error.
