That's a surprising turn of events:
That is surprising, especially since they designed the tavor for the kind of fighting they do.
I will hold on to mine but I can understand why.
The AR platform is hard to beat.

No detail in that article. Is this legit? What are the reasons?
-- Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --
Those M4s are likely covered with the $3.8 Billion dollars we gave them in 2020.

Not surprising. Same thing happened to the Galil. They get rifles from the US for free. Why spend money on rifles?

to bad they couldn't be imported in large numbers!!
FYI, There was a press release today that the IDF is buying more x95’s.
התבורים באים! IDF Announces further Micro Tavor acquisition
אנו מודים לצהל על האמון הרב ועל בחירתו להמשיך ולהצטייד ברובה המיקרו תבור!

We thank the Israel Defense Forces for their continued support and cooperation in choosing the Micro Tavor as their main service rifle. We also want to take this opportunity in wishing the IDF soldiers, IWI employees, our customers around the world, and the Israeli citizens a Very Happy Rosh Hashanah

and the Party never ends
In the end nothing beats a well made M4 for functionality and ergonomics.

In the desert, I'd much rather have a Galil.
Unless you happen to be left handed or left eye dominant. Those unfortunate few of us.
^^^There are a multitude of options available to customize the M4/AR15 Rifle to suit Left Eye Dominant/Left Handed Shooters....This is a Non-Issue, and I'm a Lefty, so I'm speaking from experience!
If Some is Good, and More is Better.....then Too Much, is Just Enough !!

And a Tavor can't be used left handed unless you change the bolt and swap the ejection port cover. Gas in the face (M4) or casings in the ear (Tavor)?

Well hooooold yer horses. Apparently more compact 95s will be purchased, but the IDF still plans on buying and issuing Tavors as their 'standard' rifle. Or at least that's so per TFB -

Man, there are a lot of innovative and interesting carbine ideas out there. But for most applications, America’s Rifle always comes out on top.
"It's a bold strategy, Cotton. Let's see if it works out for them"
Good to know. My son recently emigrated to Israel and will be joining the IDF in a few momths, and he's left eye-dominant so shoots rifles (and hits baseballs) left-handed.
Careful, the bullpup fans might state you "just aren't getting it"
I'd be willing to bet that the M16/M4 platform will outlast the M1911A1 for length of service with the US Military. A lot.

Mistake not my current state of joshing gentle peevishness for the awesome and terrible majesty of the towering seas of ire that are themselves the milquetoast shallows fringing my vast oceans of wrath.

Well, they finally came to their senses. I do love the M4. Apparently I am not alone.
