Reserve Duty Captains Roz Levy and Avial Siman Tov are behind a letter signed by 100 IDF reserve duty officers, a letter sent to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu expressing their support for his policies and leadership. They tell the prime minister that they will carry out any orders given to them following government policy decision. The signatories serve in the infantry, air force and navy. They explained they decided to write the letter of support after learning of a letter from the political left-wing, calling on Israel Air Force pilots to refuse orders should they be instructed to take part in an assault against Iran.
The officers explain they will not permit political considerations to cloud their judgment and they remain loyal to their responsibilities as an IDF officer, to carry out orders as they are given.
Over 400 Israelis aligned with the left-wing signed the letter sent to IAF pilots.
