Israel: Manning Security Check Points

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Israel, War & Conflict

Israeli A Soldier's Mother explains what it is for her son to work at a check point in this post [1]. “What does it mean to man a checkpoint? Elie and his group will have 2-3 seconds to decide if the person who is approaching them poses a threat. Is there a chance this person is armed, carrying explosives, or someone who simply wants to support his family?” she explains.
