Chief of Staff Major General Aviv Kochavi on Sunday ordered to suspend soldiers in training for up to a month, starting on Tuesday, over the spread of coronavirus.
"The state of infection in civilian areas and within the IDF requires us to take a series of actions to tighten the procedures in all army units," said Kochavi in a statement.
"Maintaining the IDF's competence is our top priority and as a result the fight against coronavirus within the IDF is a major task."
