They don't. The only unit where women can be said to participate as typical combat soldiers is Karakal, which has been tasked with patrolling a god-forsaken, quiet strip of desert on the border with Egypt (which is probably much less quiet these last few weeks). It's not a special forces unit, really, just a unit with a less mainstream task. They do generic infantry training from what I've heard.
