    [LEFT][*******#000000][FONT=Arial]Last week, the Desert Reconnaissance Battalion conducted a drill in the Urban Warfare Training Center, simulating fighting in populated cities. The drill was conducted to assure maximum efficiency while fighting in urban centers by focusing solely on hostile targets.[/FONT][/COLOR][*******#000000][FONT=Arial]The Desert Reconnaissance Battalion, also known as "the natural detectives" is comprised almost entirely of Bedouins whom, though exempt from service, volunteered to serve in the IDF.

    AFAIK, it deflects (all?) the gas to the gas port, so the piston gets enough force to send the bolt back home.
    Safety wise too of course - blocking of the barrel.

    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?
