this is for Israelis or anyone that know Israeli history.

I am looking for the story of gesher Arik in Israel.

I am vaguely remember some details from when I was younger , what I remember is that Arik was a Canadian Israeli officer.
he refused the commit an action that will hurt innocent palestinians even thou the Jewish yeshuv at the time was in a life or death risk

this is one of the first השתמטות stories in the IDF , the man refuses to act the commands of ben gurion himself , yet he is being remembered as a hero and they built a bridge for him.

this is what I remember , I don't know if I remember correctly I would love to have the details of this story.

if any one can help me please that would be great
