Meet Ahmed Inaim, a Bedouin soldier from Nazareth who has enlisted in the IDF, despite losing one brother who fell in military service and seeing another wounded in battle.

In a new video, 24-year-old Ahmed Inaim gives viewers a chance to follow him throughout the day and see how the IDF’s Bedouin trackers live and what they do.

Ahmet describes responding to a 2012 terrorist infiltration in southern Israel, and also talks about why he chose to enlist in the IDF, his experiences as a Muslim in the Israeli army, and what he views as the IDF’s most important value.
