  • Female IDF Combat Soldiers Who Enlisted Despite the Odds – Etti Abramov
    Cpl. Inbar Shimshon remembers the day in February 2016 when she was at Shuafat checkpoint next to Jerusalem. “A [Palestinian] girl came in, she looked about 20. She put her things into the X-ray machine, and we saw that she had left one bag outside. I asked her to put that in the machine, too, and then we identified a sharp object inside a gallon of yogurt….When I poured the container out in the sink, we found the knife….Suddenly you catch somebody your own age that’s coming to murder and kill people. It’s painful to comprehend that they don’t have a problem killing.”
    Few knew that Shimshon had to struggle to enlist and then to become a combat soldier, as she had suffered from cancer in her childhood. “It really moved me,” she said, “that I can save lives in return like my own life was saved. People could have been hurt, and I prevented it.”  (Ynet News)
