Report: IDF Cutting Guard Positions in Yesha

The Central Command of the Israel Defense Forces is cutting 21 security-guard positions in seven communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron), according to a Thursday report by IDF Radio.

The IDF responded to the report by saying, "A series of efficiency measures are being considered, and as a result of the increased expenses of security guards, it was decided to cut positions out of the need not to exceed the budget framework."
