Download PDF for this date

For the first time ever, a male soldier has been made an instructor for a women’s officer officer training course.

The officer, Lt. Lior Siton, 22, had asked to lead a women’s officer training course. The chief women’s officer, Lt. Col. Yisraela Oron, said she had no problem with his request, because women train cadets in men’s officer courses.
