The Israel Defense Force (Hebrew: צְבָא הַהֲגָנָה לְיִשְׂרָאֵל), (Read as "Tzeva Ha'Hagana Le'Israel") 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. Some actions the IDF took part in were the Six-Day War and the 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 "turban", like the ones worn by high priests), an Israeli helmet cover designed to provide camouflage in war.
As the IDF is the name of the entire Israeli military and because no other identifying information is given, we can only take an educated guess about which unit in the IDF they enrole. Judging by Their brown-red boots and their weapons, they are most likely an elite special-forces unit that specializes in counter-terrorism, The best options being Sayeret Matkal (the equivalent of the British SAS) or Duvdevan (a semi-undercover counter-terror unit that specializes in combating the terror factions in the West-Bank). That being said, they may also belong to the Paratroopers Brigade's reconnaissance unit.
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.
