The IDF has been an army of occupation too long. Such duty has a debilitating effect. Skills, other than lording over the occupied, kicking the ass of those who resist, and being mostly bored to tears decline. Habits form - we have seen the results of sleeping on duty in the last year - based upon the situation, which is mostly less than war, but disrupts normal training. The IDF was created for the purpose of defending Israel - and it used to be extremely good at that. Now it spends most of it's time offending the Palestinians. Which has severely reduced it's ability to defend Israel.
