Israel Stands Up New Commando Brigade

On a late December afternoon here overlooking the sun-kissed Jezreel Valley in the lower Galilee, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) inaugurated its new Oz Commando Brigade, a key force-multiplying feature of its multi-year Plan Gideon.

It was from here, according to the bible, that Gideon, the 5th judge of Israel, and his hand-picked force of 300 soldiers vanquished a 150,000-strong Midianite Army.
