    deflects - send or bounce in a different direction.
    reflects - what you do in the mirror. Or when sitting on the toilet.

    Girls who are in combat units or are combat supporters must wear boots with alef.

    Private contractor, most probably working at one of the checkpoints on the Green Line that have been privatized.

    I didn't know that. How many have been privatized, roughly? Is that really a more profitable solution than having conscripts guard them?

    Most ( if not all) of the Settlements and the subsequent checkpoints are not IDF manned, thats what I meant.

    I thought you meant the checkpoints along the main roads, like from Jerusalem to the Dead Sea.

    Can`t give an exact number but a fair few.

    The MoD seems to think it`s a solution and I myself wouldn`t mind if it was a tad more costly if it relieves the pressure off conscripts and reservists and allows more time for training.

    I have only seen privatized checkpoints on the Green Line (going in and out of the West Bank), especially around Jerusalem.
