Israel’s Army, known as the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) or Tzahal in Hebrew, was formally created right after the establishment of Israel’s independence in 1948, arising out of guerilla militant groups that were already defending Jewish lives in the Land of Israel. Since then, the IDF has defended Israel through many wars and operations, and has been tasked with protecting all of Israel’s citizens while keeping the state’s borders secure. The IDF’s ground troops, Air Force, Navy, special forces, reserves, and the Mossad intelligence service are often considered among the most elite and advanced in the world.
