Israel’s Army, also known as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), was created less than two weeks after Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion declared Israel’s independence in 1948. Since then, the IDF has been tasked with protecting all of Israel’s citizens and keeping the state’s borders secure through its ground troops, Air Force, and Navy, which are frequently considered to be some of the strongest and most advanced armies in the world.
