IDF officers learn Arabic – Israel News, Ynetnews

In his line of duty, Lieutenant Colonel Dr. Micah Kasirer, the Judea and Samaria division medical officer, encounters many Palestinians injured in accidents. In many cases, he just doesn’t understand what they are saying and has a hard time offering them medical assistance.

But that’s about to change. At the age of 38 Kasirer is heading back to school – together with 16 staff officers who are studying Arabic, including Brigadier General Nitzan Alon, who commands the Judea and Samaria Division.
