A questionnaire distributed at an air force base by the educational corps in the wake of the Gaza campaign asks troops to take stock of the operation, with one highly questionable entry.
“Something funny that happened to me during the campaign,” the fill-in-the-blank entry requests.
The other items ask the soldiers to share experiences, feelings, something they’ve learned, and what the operation means to them.
At the bottom of the paper, which was posted on social media and subsequently went viral, it says: “If you have photos of the operation, you are welcome to send them to us.”
The educational surveys are occasionally distributed to soldiers to allow them articulate their emotions and thoughts in response to the often difficult experiences they encounter during their service.
An unnamed soldier who was asked to fill in the survey described the questionnaire as an “embarrassment” in an interview with Channel 2.
“It’s a waste of the paper it’s printed on,” he says.
The IDF spokesman’s office says it is looking into the incident.
