The saying in the IDF is “The army marches on its stomach,” stressing the importance of feeding combat soldiers well. That being the case, a soldier in Nachal Chareidi photographed the meal he and his colleagues were served, noting when it comes to chareidi soldiers there appears to be a different standard.

The photo was sent by a combat soldier from a chareidi unit serving in the field, stating the day began at 6:00am and this was breakfast. The soldier added “we didn’t even get a piece of bread,” and anyone who has served in the IDF knows there is usually an abundance of bread at all meals.

Kikar Shabbos News reports that at the time of this report, there was no response from the IDF Spokesman’s Unit.
