    I don't know the actual rules, I just listened to people speaking. Generally I would say that people tend to mumble and slur vowels or words together. (Not just Israelis, in other languages too - think "I do not know" to "dunno"!) So probably there is a tendency not to pronounce it.

    There's a site called forvo where individual words are pronounced in foreign languages. You can try that too.
