Israeli platoon commander Racheli Levantal (L) of the Karakal ground Battalion, made up of male and female combat soldiers, checks a soldier's weapon during a training session at a military base in southern Israel, in this February 12, 2007 file picture. Team Mor is a spotter unit on Israel's fenced-off border with Egypt, deployed at night to intercept would-be infiltrators from the lawless Sinai desert. Like dozens of others along the tense divide, it is all-female. REUTERS/Eliana Aponte/Files
