NOT ALL lone soldiers are people who have come from abroad to join the IDF. Many are Israelis who may be orphans, or who grew up in haredi families and broke away, or whose parents abandoned them in infancy for one reason or another.

Paratrooper Haim Lev-Tov is a lone soldier in the latter category.
