Women

In the Israeli Military - 30 May 2014
Military service is mandatory in Israel with women accounting for one out of every three soldiers.

The "Caracal" battalion, two-thirds of whose members are women, was established in 2004 with the purpose of incorporating female soldiers in combat units. The main mission of Caracal is routine patrols on Israel's border with Egypt to intercept infiltrators and smuggling from the Sinai desert.
