The Israel Defense Forces announced on Thursday the suspension of a high-ranking naval reservist for refusing to show up for duty in protest of judicial reform.

His service was suspended following a conversation with the head of the navy. The suspension of another reservist who boycotted reserve duty will be up for review in the coming days after a conversation with him takes place.
