Israeli soldiers lack life-saving body armors, rotate them: Media
Israeli media say the Israeli occupation military in the occupied West Bank has been handing its soldiers ceramic body armor on a rotating basis.
Israeli occupation soldiers in the occupied West Bank have been complaining they routinely get sent on raids without life-saving ceramic body armors due to severe shortages, "Israel" Hayom reported.
The news website revealed that occupation soldiers in other occupied areas are also affected by the shortage.
It cited sources familiar with the matter as saying that "body armor and additional equipment necessary to save lives are handled at the brigade level, but they too have faced a severe lack of the necessary ceramic armor. "
According to the Israeli newspaper, the Israeli occupation military in the occupied West Bank has been handing its soldiers ceramic body armor on a rotating basis.
It pointed out that during raids, only some occupation soldiers are given armor, while others are not.
"It's like sending a soldier for a stakeout with a plastic gun," one source told the Israeli newspaper.
"How come there is enough money to fund the Haredim and the yeshivot [religious institutions] but not life-saving lives? This is just mind-boggling."
