IDF rejects allegations of discrimination against female soldiers receiving fertility treatment

The IDF on Tuesday rejected claims made by the Israel Bar Association, according to which, female career soldiers undergoing fertility treatment are subject to discriminatory treatment.

In a statement sent to The Jerusalem Post, the IDF Spokesman Unit said the military "provides a broad defense against the firing of female career soldiers who are receiving fertility treatment, both during their absence, and for 150 days afterward." In cases where the IDF has chosen to release female career soldiers who are receiving fertility treatment, the issue is closely examined by Personnel Directorate officers, in line with military orders, the Spokesman Unit argued.
