IDF Infantry Instructor during Field Week: part of a new Flickr album, “Women of the IDF”

The IDF Flickr account features photographic content taken by the IDF Spokesperson’s film department. The albums include recent photos and descriptions as well as photographic content released by the unit over the past ten years. One of the goals of the account is to provide an easily accessible and centralized archive of official IDF photographs online.

The first albums released on the account include: “Becoming a Soldier“, “Women of the IDF“, “Celebrating Diversity“, “Flotilla Operation, May 2010“, “IDF Aid Delegation to Haiti, January 2010“, and “The Francop, November 2009“. Additional albums will be published on a regular basis during the coming months.

The Flickr page will join other IDF ventures in social media, including the official IDF blog , IDF YouTube channel, Twitter and Scribd pages.
