    The guys that film are doing a video report. Would be worrisome for everybody if they point their rifle in order film their footage.

    How about using helmet cam? It's commonly found with UK and US forces.

    It's not the same thing.
    A camera on the helmet documents the action.
    These guys are shooting with an handy-cam that allows to choose precisely the frame, to zoom in and out, to set the focus, to set the exposure… in order to have the diverse shots needed to edit a video report for the Spokesman of the IDF. (The kind of reports we can see on YouTube or on this thread.)

    Yes, see your point and it makes sense.

    Getting jabbed with the muzzle of an M4 or Tavor probably hurts but the move would be a lot more effective against an adrenalin-fueled attacker...especially one wearing soft armor and/or heavy web loadbearing gear...if an edged weapon were affixed. I don't pretend to have any special insight into the minds of the Israeli commanders and planners but I have always felt that a serious mistake was made...both tactically and in terms of imparting martial spirit...by eliminating the bayonet from the IDF weapon inventory and training syllabus.

    x100 agree.
    Also important for all the fighting spirit thing, IMHO. One of the thing I truly envy the Brits about.

    When did the IDF ever train with bayonets? This is a serious question; we certainly did not.

    I honestly don't know if they ever did so or not. My point was that they should have been and still should be, IMO.

    I have no idea... but that's beyond the point. I'd love to see bayonet training in the basics.
