The Israeli Defense Forces will begin distributing 850 neck-protecting shields to combat soldiers. The neck shields, which will be distributed by the end of the month, are designed to protect soldiers from terrorist stabbing attacks and at this point are allotted to combat soldiers at checkpoints and inspection stations.

According to images of the shield that was first seen in “BaMahane” (a weekly magazine published by the IDF), it seems that the shield has wide shoulder straps that will provide protection for the neck area and collarbone.
