Report: Israeli soldiers’ uniforms could soon be manufactured by Palestinians

Israeli soldiers’ uniforms could soon be manufactured by Palestinian workers, the Ynet news site reports.

The website looks at a bidding process for uniforms being led by the Defense Ministry. It notes that one of the companies has a plant in the West Bank that employs Palestinians.

According to the report, concerns have been raised that during times of increased tensions or conflict, Palestinian workers might not show up for work.

But the ministry tells Ynet that those concerns have been taken into account and would be handled should the matter become relevant.
