Outgoing IDF Personnel Directorate head Maj. Gen. Avi Zamir sent a farewell document to Chief of Staff Benny Gantz. According to the document, the IDF has gone too far in responding to the demands of rabbis, and that for this reason it is excluding women from high-ranking position. Examples cited in the document include a battalion commander refusing female staff officers, the decreasing number of training posts for female soldiers, and combat troops refusing to accept female sharpshooting instructors.
