After Haaretz Investigation Into Lone Soldier Suicides, Israeli Army Opens New Support Center

Concerned by a string of recent tragedies affecting Diaspora Jews serving in the Israel Defense Forces, the army is opening a new support center that will address the special needs of these so-called lone soldiers.

The move comes after a Haaretz investigation revealed serious failings in the lone soldier program. It reflects the army’s seeming resolve to take full responsibility for the plight of these recruits rather than outsource their care to private organizations that rely primarily on donors.
