The Israeli army reportedly has stopped using female trainers for religious conscripts after their rabbis objected. Yediot Achronot reported Tuesday that new recruits from yeshiva backgrounds would no longer undergo combat and fitness training under woman instructors. According to the report, the decision was made after religious conscripts complained to their rabbis that the mixing in the ranks distracted them. The army had no immediate comment.
