Female combat soldiers of the field intelligence company “Nachshol” are stationed along the southern Israeli border.

“Both the female observer and the female field intelligence combat soldier observe the field to gather information, though the two differ in their method of observation,” said Lt. Dana, the company commander. “A combat soldier stationed near the fence will unquestionably know how to storm a target.”
