Women need to be mobilised only when there is an all out war and resources (human) are scare. When a country has to throw everything it has got at the enemy, women are called upon. Israel isn't a large nation so the women have to be drafted to maintain the strength of forces that can be mobilised. Similarly, it is a fight for survival for the Kurds. They don't have the luxury of not drafting women. Btw have you noticed the fertility rate of Israeli women? The average Israeli woman has three babies in her lifetime... why do you think this is?
