An Instagram account called Hot Israeli Army Girls features women carrying assault rifles both in service uniform and sexy bikinis, and has racked up thousands of followers.
All Jewish Israeli citizens are required to complete national service when they turn 18 years old, including women, who must serve a minimum of two years in the armed forces, according to the Daily Mail.
But when these young women are not dealing with heavy machinery and kicking ass in training, they are flaunting their fit bodies, posing for pictures in their underwear or bikinis and posting photos of themselves basking in the sun.
Israeli women are deployed to active frontline duties during the same years their Western counterparts might be going to college or getting their first jobs, noted The Sun.
On the Instagram account dedicated to beautiful female Israeli soldiers, images of the young women, most of whom are in their late teens and early twenties, pose in their military garb and are juxtaposed with their bikini shots.
The Hot Israeli Army Girls page has already gained more than 59,000 followers as of this writing, and more than 2,000 photos of different stunning soldiers have been uploaded.
However, the account, which encourages followers to send in pics of attractive female troops via email, has not posted a new photo in 77 weeks.
According to the Daily Mail, the Israel Defense Forces said that they have punished a group of women for “unbecoming behavior” after some pictures appeared on local news sites.
