The IDF has increasingly incorporated women into its ranks, according to data presented by Brig. Gen. Gila Kalifi-Amir, the Chief of the General Staff's Women's Affairs adviser.
"Women make up 33 percent of the IDF, taking into consideration their shorter service in comparison to males," said Brig. Gen. Kalifi-Amir Thursday. "51% of IDF officers are females serving as both career soldiers and reservists. Women also make up 3% of the IDF's combat soldiers and 15% of technical personnel."
