On Monday, the Israeli Defence Forces conducted a defence drill in schools across the country, and uploaded a photo to their Facebook page showing a female soldier instructing school children. The message accompanying the photo (pictured) read: "When I enter the classroom, I know I am preparing tomorrow's citizens for the next war". The photo seemed to spark a debate on Facebook with some users questioning the phrase "the next war". The IDF has since spoken about it saying: "The photo does not try to promote the IDF in schools but to provide safety instructions."
