Maj. Oshrat Bachar, the first female battalion commander! And shame on the press...

At least four news outfits reported this:

Maj. Oshrat Bachar will be promoted to rank of Lieut.-Col and will head Eitam battalion, tasked with monitoring terror in Sinai Peninsula.
Three of them used the same picture from IDF archives, with JP (the link above) using the worst resolution, TOI more or less following suit and Haaretz, the peaceniks, being somewhat less stingy with their bits and bytes, so here the picture from Haaretz:


Shame on all three of them, really...

Another side issue: her hubby held the same rank of major before this promotion. I wonder about the checks and balances in the family now, after the event.

Oh well.

Peace...
