Is it true that every citizen of Israeel is given Military training?

Yes they do have to do it once they turn 18 .... it is compulsory and necessary for the nation of Israel to survive. Men to 3 years, women do 2 years although both can extend to do further service if they want .... some people are exempt on religious and medical/psychological grounds from doing any military service in the Israel Defence Force. Lots of countries still have compulsory military service, or training, not just Israel.

Military service is still compulsory for Jewish and Druze men and Jewish women over 18. Exemptions are made for religious, physical or psychological grounds or for those enrolled in Yeshivas. Service is for 3 years for men and two for women. Women who enroll for combat positions serve for full 3 years due to length of training.
