The Israel Defense Force (Hebrew: צְבָא הַהֲגָנָה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל) was founded on May 31, 1948, shortly after the founding of the State of Israel. The IDF got famous following year in Israel Independence War in 1949. They consist of the ground, air and navy forces. Their other actions include Gaza War or Lebanon War.
The IDF commandos wear olive green uniforms with green tactical vests as well as black balaclavas and knee pads. Some models are wearing either a helmet with goggles or a helmet with the famous "mitznefet" (Hebrew for "clown hat"), an Israeli helmet cover designed to provide camouflage in war. Their brown boots indicates that they might be paratroopers.
The IDF were first seen on Dust2 in the first trailer for Global Offensive. The IDF hand model features light green sleeves with a brick red/brown color for the outside of the gloves and the inside featuring the same green color as the sleeves. They were added to the Beta in the August 10th 2012 update. As mentioned above, they appear in two maps: Dust and Dust II. Their enemies are the Elite Crew faction.
