Israeli media: Almost a third of the country's students are among the reservists

After the attack of the Palestinian Hamas movement on Israel on October 7, the country began mobilizing reservists in addition to the Israeli regular army (IDF).

Tens of thousands of Israelis were drafted into the army, and among them were many teachers and students of higher educational institutions. According to the English-language online newspaper The Times of Israel, up to 30 percent of Israeli students are on the reserve lists.

Some changes have already affected the country's universities. Thus, the committee of rectors of Israeli universities announced that the start of the academic year will be delayed until the conscription of reservists is completed. The autumn semester, which begins there on October 15, was previously postponed to the beginning of November, and now it will begin only at the beginning of winter - on December 3.



According to some reports, up to 360 thousand reservists were drafted into the Israeli Defense Forces. And this despite the fact that the IDF personnel, even without them, number about 170 thousand people. As of 2021, there were 465 thousand people in reserve. Obviously, an army of more than half a million is not needed to fight the small Palestinian movement, given that the militant wing of Hamas numbers a maximum of 35-40 thousand people. Either this is being done to intimidate, or Israel is preparing for a much larger armed conflict.

      About 300 thousand mobilized reservists were declared there.
      Then they even said that some of them began to be sent home (on leave).
      Now it is reported that (Jerusalem Post writes) 10 thousand bulletproof vests have been distributed to IDF reservists. True, we are talking about an additional 10 thousand body armor.
      And the rest, apparently, got a personal Merkava...

    You can call up at least a million reservists, but they need to be trained. Storming enemy positions by simply standing up from your desk in the city is a waste of time. But Israel does not have time, it is being rushed by domestic politicians and the Americans - they have elections.

      They are trained. They are all after military service.
      In Israel they go to college
      after active service.

    Hello, we've arrived. Compare the number of militants in Chechnya in 2001 and the OGV(s). Soldiers are needed to control the territory, to storm strongholds in dense urban areas; the population of the Sector is 2 people.

    What? I wonder if they will somehow catch up later or will they simply postpone the completion of their diplomas for six months? In general, it all looks as if Israel is fighting for survival, although there are some terrorists against it who don’t even have artillery. I keep asking myself, “What the hell is going on?”

    Almost a third of the country's students are in the ranks of reservists
    Not everyone will receive university diplomas if the cleansing of Gaza begins.

    . They called, it’s just an inconvenience, a nuisance... but if/when the decline begins, it could become a problem, as always, for any small state.
    At the expense of whom can they have some kind of population growth? Due to the runners, or what?
    So they run away from everywhere and for the “inhabited country” they have no care and never will....

    In terms of specific mobilization, the Zionists can be envied. For comparison, it’s interesting what our students think about the war with the Hryukoreik?
