organza

Here is my best explanation:

'material' is the definition.
(organza is a kind of material)

'soldiers new in palestinian area' is the wordplay.
'soldiers' becomes 'or' (Other Rank).
'new' becomes 'n'.
'in' indicates putting letters inside.
'palestinian area' becomes 'gaza' (I've seen this before).
'n' put into 'gaza' is 'ganza'.
'or'+'ganza'='ORGANZA'

'must get' acts as a link.
