First woman appointed as artillery fire commander for Givati Brigade
The IDF's Artillery Corps appointed Major Chen Hamra as commander of a unit that provides fire support for infantry units on Thursday, making her the first woman to serve in the position.
The appointment came following a discussion led by the Chief Artillery Officer, who promoted Hamra to her new role after previously serving as Deputy Commander of the 405th Battalion in the 282nd Brigade.
In her new role, Hamra will be responsible for providing artillery support for the Givati infantry Brigade when it maneuvers in enemy territory in future conflicts.
