Israeli Army Allows Women in Enemy Territory

The Israeli army will permit women to enter enemy territory during military missions. Female doctors will now be allowed into combat zones to evacuate and treat soldiers.

The decision arises from an increase in women doctors in the army. Israeli Surgeon General Arial Dan stated, “It’s a totally natural development.”

The Israeli Army allows women, who are drafted at the age of 18, to train as pilots and in certain types of combat.
