The New York Times reports that a 
senior officer in the US Defense Intelligence Agency announced his resignation from the army, rejecting the killing of civilians and children in the Gaza war. Maj. Harrison Mann, justifying his resignation, cited US policies that violated his conscience

The New York Times revealed that a senior officer in the US Defense Intelligence Agency announced his resignation from the army, rejecting the killing of civilians and children in the Gaza war. 

The American newspaper explained that the officer holds the rank of major, and his name is Harrison Mann, who specializes in the Middle East. He spent half of his career, 13 years, in its affairs, and previously worked at the American embassy in Tunisia. 

The New York Times pointed out that it is not known whether there have been other resignations in protest against American foreign policy since the aggression on Gaza, but the resignation of Mann, who is on active duty, over his country’s policy, is likely to be uncommon, especially since he announced the details that I pushed him for it. 

This is not the first resignation from decision-making centers in the United States, and it was preceded by Josh Paul, the official in the State Department’s office, supervising arms transfers, who refused to arm the Israeli occupation. Mann said he had intended to leave the army "at some point," but the Gaza war prompted him to resign on November 1 and leave his assignment at the Military Intelligence Agency.

Another US service member protested the war by setting himself on fire in front of the Israeli diplomatic building.
