The leaders of the reservists' protest against the legal revolution will hold a press conference today (Tuesday), where they will "officially announce that a people's army only exists in a democracy", according to the language of the announcement.
This, after thousands of reservists have already announced that they will not report for duty in protest of the plan to weaken the justice system promoted by the government.
Yesterday Vala learned that Defense Minister Yoav Galant and Chief of Staff Herzi Halevi discussed the expansion of the reservists' protest. The protest escalated at the end of the week, with the addition of hundreds of reservists from the special operations system of the Amman and 250 cyber warriors in reserve, many dozens of active reserve pilots, about half from the operators of the unmanned aircraft and dozens of controllers from the Air Force.

At this stage, army officials claim, "There is no harm to the operational activity, but the trend is negative and it may infect additional formations in the IDF in the reserves as well as those serving regularly.
Therefore, you have to keep talking and constantly check what is happening at the field levels.
This is a very dangerous situation."
On the other hand, a senior military official said that "the reservists are playing with fire.
This is very dangerous.
This is a violation of the army's activities and certainly there is one.
As soon as a unit commander considers who to invite according to the demonstrations and not according to the operational need, there is harm, and it will go on and on and on and on and on and on."
