    Israeli pilots refuse to attack Palestinians
    A group of 27 pilots in the Israeli Air Force are refusing to take part in operations against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

    The pilots, including those on active reserve duty and several retired pilots, wrote to Air Force Chief Major-General Dan Halutz conveying their objections.

    The letter, reported by several Israeli media outlets, said the pilots were opposed to carrying out illegal and immoral attack orders of the type carried out by Israel in the territories.

    Referring to the policy of targeted killings of Palestinian militants, the letter went on to declare the pilots refusal to take part in attacks in civilian population centres.

    Scores of Palestinians have been killed in such attacks.

    Air Force chief Dan Halutz said those pilots refusing to follow orders will be brought before the law.
