IDF stands down from role during coronavirus pandemic

The IDF has announced it is beginning to remove its troops from ‘duty assisting civilians’ during the coronavirus pandemic following the lifting of restrictions for most Israelis.

IDF troops took part in ‘assisting residents’ of the predominately orthodox cities and communities who were hard hit by COVID-19.

The military said they would conduct a gradual return to pre-coronavirus behavior limiting access to public transportation in central stations to avoid crowds and increasing the number of troops permitted to remain in one indoor location to 50.
