Parents complain about conditions of observation soldiers serving on northern border

Parents of conscripts serving as observation soldiers on the northern border are complaining about the poor conditions they face as fighting heats up on the border.

Parents tell the Kan public broadcaster the soldiers sleep in tents in the middle of winter, have mold in their open-air showers and sometimes mold in the food.

They also complain that inside the observation stations, they sit on broken chairs.

In addition, the safe room on the base is too small for all the soldiers, parents say.

“How can they concentrate on their jobs in conditions worse than prison?” one parent tells Kan.

The soldiers are key to identifying and warning about possible cross-border infiltrations.
