Israel's minorities and military service

We look at how Israel's religious minorities feel about military service. At the end of last month - three weeks after the latest conflict with militants in Gaza started - Israel called up another 16,000 reservists. Some Israelis risked jail rather than joining Operation Protective Edge. But others, who don't legally have to be a part of the IDF, such as Christians, signed up as volunteers.
