Netanyahu Celebrates 70th Birthday with Comrades from Old Commando Unit | Jewish Press

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu celebrated his 70th birthday with“Team Bibi”, named after Netanyahu, who commanded the Elite IDF General Staff Reconnaissance Unit during the War of Attrition where they took part in several border assault raids. The group met up at the Crusader fortress at Kochav Hayarden National Park where their final training exercise took place and reminisced by singing the unit song and receiving medals made by the members. Netanyahu said he was proud of the achievements of his soldiers including a successful rescue mission of the hijacked Sabena Flight  571. Netanyahu was more excited to celebrate his soldiers than his own birthday, saying it was a privilege to have the team he did and maintain a strong bond.
