Caracal in action! For the first time too in the combat role?
Devoted readers to the blog please contrast also the performance of Captain Or with that shameful behavior of Mr. Burley as was the subject of the previous blog entry!
"This Female IDF Soldier Fought Off 23 Terrorists in Surprise Attack"
"Captain Or Ben-Yehuda of the Israeli Defense Forces has cemented a legacy that will endure well past her lifetime. The young, decorated IDF Captain was in charge of a company of soldiers when they were violently attacked by nearly two dozen terrorists near the Egyptian border."
That company of soldiers part and parcel of the Caracal mixed gender combat unit. Previous to this incident the role of Caracal strictly [?] confined to patrolling, reconnaissance, intelligence gathering.
"Due to her leadership and bravery, she and her men were able to survive.[She and her men but probably much more than men!!]"
. . . .
"For her actions and bravery, Captain Ben-Yehuda was awarded Israel’s highest honor, the Medal of Valor."
See previous blog entries the topic of which was the mixed gender Caracal combat arms battalion:
