It's interesting that many of them carry their Tavors with fluorescent red chamber flags, and that the chamber flags appear leashed to a QD socket, as though this is standard procedure for them.  The chamber flags are most apparent in the photo of the guy in a white shirt with black writing getting tackled, and the photo with the two IDF soldiers walking past two Muslim women.

I can't zoom in on the pictures, but I think the red chamber flags are attached with bungee cords under tension, so pulling back on the bolt will pull out the flag.

Perhaps the Israelis practice empty chamber carry on the rifles too.

What is the big fabric bag on top of the helmets?

It’s their take on a camoflague cover. It is called a mitznefet in Hebrew—attaches to a regular combat helmet and obscures its rigid, round shape. As the mitznefet acts a bit like active camoflague, it flops about, it takes on an irregular form that's harder to recognize in a shadow or out of the corner of your eye. The hat also protects against the sun and the moon, which might reflect off the surface of the helmet. A standard mitznefet consists of reversible mesh fabric, with a greenish woodland camouflage print on one side and a brown desert print on the other.

What does the word mitznefet mean? One common translation is "clown hat," but the term has some more dignified connotations. The biblical Book of Exodus uses *mitznefet *to describe the ancient headgear of the Jewish high priests. As such, the word has been translated as "mitre" or "headdress." But some biblical scholars think *mitznefet *comes from the root "to wrap," and say that a better translation would be "turban."

I was gonna ask that same question Leonitus. Thanks for the explanation. It would work to break up the outline which is one major function of camouflage.
