"Knowing that the soldiers I worked so closely with, who I taught and trained and fought with, the brigade that I helped expand in the south, always has someone looking after them, has a whole wonderful community providing them so much, it is an amazing feeling. Even though you were far physically, you were always close to our hearts and I want to thank you from all of the soldiers that you helped supporting. Knowing that people far away are thinking about you warms the heart." Maj. Ortal Amar, Combat Intelligence Brigade
The fighters of the Combat Intelligence Corps are commonly known as "The Eyes of the Nation:' They are the first line of defense on the field and the first to face enemy threats. Using a combination of technology and human capabilities, they can find terrorist units or suspicious activity, and identify targets and abnormal behavior. Moreover, what makes the Combat Intelligence Corps even more special is that women play a vital role alongside men, participating in all the corps' operations.
The strength of the IDF derives from the selfless determination and great capabilities of the brave young men and women who leave their homes at the tender age of 18 to uphold the difficult task of defending the State of Israel.
