IDF Investigates Pizza Cravings

Download PDF for this date

Late night hankerings for pizza have gotten a number of Israeli soldiers into hot water.

The army is reportedly investigating soldiers operating in the security zone in southern Lebanon for allegedly using cellular telephones to order pizzas.

A waitress in northern Israel told Israel Radio how she would meet the soldiers, who drove to the border in a command car around midnight to pick up the pies.

Last week, the army imposed a ban on the soldiers’ use of cellular telephones, which have become something of a craze in Israel.

Along with ordering pizzas, some soldiers on duty in Lebanon have apparently been using the telephones to contact their brokers for the latest stock quotes.
