They are fighting in wide open desert (little cover) and high temperatures which most of the soldiers aren't use too, but have to deal with. There is also the fear of lack of water, gases, bad equipment (gas masks, detoxification if there is a gas warning, vehicles that are not extremely protective against planted bombs) to name a few.
