There are combat options for women. Some are on the front line. There is a infantry unit with many girl soldiers in it. They are based in the south region of the country and patrol the Jordan border and Egyptian border. The Jordan border is pretty quiet but there is always action near Egypt. Girls who choose to serve in a combat unit have to sign on for 3 years. They make this choice but there are combat units open for women.

Let me see, where I grew up, I watched my Grandma shot the heads off chickens with a old rolling block .22 cal. rifle from the back porch to the coup regularly, and Grandma outshot Grandpa at turkeyshoots, and Grandpa won many shoots....

I watched my wife shot her .45 Colt and put the rounds in the X-ring at 75 feet....

women fighting as a sign of desperation? Around here a man had better hope the women AREN"T around at all when fighting time comes!

Remember, it ain't the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

they ARE in both frontline, and combat units, and sometimes are in Lebanon.
Recently, one of them has been killed in Lebanon... G-d bless her memory.
Mostly, luckily, they are in second circle frontline.

Never underestimate women in combat roles. During WWII, some of the best Russian snipers with the highest number of kills were women. They sent many Nazis to their final resting place.
