Two 22 year old former students of a Jewish school in Melbourne have been wounded while fighting for the Israeli army in Gaza. There are a number of Australians who regularly travel to Israel and serve in the army.
It was reported that Dutch authorities were concerned that a large number of Dutch citizens were fighting for the Israeli army when it invaded Gaza last month.
It is estimated that there are more than 2500 foreign nationals from more than 60 countries enlisted in the Israeli army. Most of them are from the US.
