The Israeli army (IDF) has taken advantage of a generous new offer by online photo-sharing website Flickr to create a new photo stream showing what is is like to be a soldier in the Jewish state.
The IDF's Flickr page (which can be found here) does feature shots of Israeli soldiers training for and carrying out combat missions. But it also includes so much more.
Flickr has given the IDF an opportunity to show a different side of Israeli soldiers from that portrayed by the mainstream media. Check it out!
