How to use jumpy in a sentence?

  1. Alexander Zakharchenko:

    While we still have time before the spring, new detachments will be able to receive military training, we expect mobilization to yield at least five additional brigades five motorized brigades, one artillery brigade and a tank brigade. The Ukrainian rearguard for the Debaltseve front in Artemivsk, the home of one of the country's best-selling sparkling wines, looks increasingly like a garrison town. Auto-mechanics and tire shops have seen a sharp pick-up in business repairing damaged vehicles brought in by soldiers. Abandoned Soviet-era plants have been converted into bases. The local stadium is used as a landing pad for helicopters ferrying out the wounded. Many troops are nervous, jumpy and ill-tempered. On Wednesday, a group of irregulars detained a group of international journalists in the center and threatened to escort them out of the town if they took pictures of military equipment. The cannonades are fainter in Artemivsk, but they can still be heard. The significance of that is lost on few.
