(NEWS) IDF's Combat Soldiers To Carry Cameras, Not Just Guns

"The IDF is training some of its ground troops to take pictures of the battlefield as they fight, in order to provide Israel with ammunition in the information war.

Soldiers from the IDF's elite Egoz infantry unit are about to participate in a photography course taught by IDF field photographers from the Spokesperson's Unit. The course will teach these soldiers the basics of photography, the IDF's official website reports.

The five-day course is being taught in all combat brigades, to small groups of soldiers that are picked from each unit. 'The goal is that in each platoon, there will be a photographer,' explained 1st Sgt. Or Rodansky, one of the field photographers who teach the course."
