Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday reiterated his opposition to discrimination against women, citing the five female soldiers graduating from the Israel Air Force pilot's course as an example of women's equality.

Speaking at the IAF pilot's course graduation ceremony at the Hatzerim Air Force Base in the Negev, Netanyahu said that "in the State of Israel, in which women sit in the cockpit, women can sit in any place."
