Female IDF cadets tasked with guarding Oct. 7 terrorists

Female cadets in the army have been tasked with guarding over Hamas terrorists who took part in the October 7 attacks on Israel, Kan news reported earlier.

The report did not name the holding facility in question, but said the cadets were disturbed by the work with the male terror suspects and quoted one of the cadets as saying they preferred “to fight in Gaza than to watch over the terrorists.”

Prior to the war the posting of young female servicemenbers as guards in prison facilities came under scrutiny after reports of sexual harassment and assault of female guards by Palestinian terror convicts as well as improper relationships.

The netowrk reported the cadets are forced to watch the male suspects’ every action, and that in one case one of jailed men carried out an indecent act before the soldiers.

The IDF told Kan the guard work was one of the tasks given to both male and female cadets. Responding to the question of whether the cadets could face harassment, the army said: “If an irregular incident occurs, it is dealt with severely by the facility commanders.”
