A record number of 1,000 women enlisted in IDF combat units this year, Army radio reported Wednesday.

Only six years ago, only 547 women served in combat units in the entire Israeli army.

The increase in women's combat service is the result of changes in IDF policy as well as enlistee's changing service preferences, Army radio said.
