Sharren Haskel, 34, a member of the ruling Likud party, is the first female member of the Israeli Knesset to have served as a combat soldier during her mandatory military service. She still carries a firearm and was at the range for her annual training as ​required by Israeli law.

“I make sure to improve my marksmanship at the range every year,” Haskel said in a social media post that included footage of her outing. “Since my service as a combat soldier and commander in the Border Police and a level 07-Rifleman basic training, I carry a personal firearm. It’s my duty to maintain my shooting skills, so I’ll be ready for any situation. That’s how every gun-carrying citizen should act.”
