Спецподразделения Армии Израиля: "Голани" (Special forces in Army of Israel Golani)
a teenager, who arrived to his historical native land through NAALE project. I
had some information about Israel and knew that in Israel, the army is the
honor and power of the state, and serving in it is not a grim duty, like in the
countries we came from, but honor. I dreamt of finishing the school and joining
the army. Everyone understands that serving in the army means not simply
completing his duty but to contribute to the welware of the motherland. As the
graduation is coming closer, I start asking myself and think more and more
about these things: how, where, and in what units to serve. It is very
difficult to find answers to these questions, if you don’t know where to look
for them. I found where and have found them. I think this information will not
change our friends’ opinion but it may show them one of many different ways of life,
what they can choose in this country, where they and me going to live and build
Like in other countries the army of Israel (IDF) has its own special units for
different special missions.
civilian doesn’t know whom he must be grateful for his safety and life, we
don’t know how many times our life has been saved by solders of special units
who arrested or killed suicide bombers who wanted to kill innocent people. And
there is enormous work what is done in Arab and Israeli towns to capture and
arrest criminals and
who were clear and present danger to Israeli citizens. There were also a lot of
special secret operations in countries of potential enemy, which were not only
dangerous for life of the solders but were also dangerous for whole Israel. This was one of the reasons; I decided to make this project.
Now I will tell you about one of these units-about Golani brigade. About
history of this unit and historical role, it played in history of our country.
I made up my mind to tell about Golani, because there are a lot of pupils who
want to go there. And live in the north of Israel, where unit the Golani is
The Golani Brigade (חטיבת
גולני ) is
an Israeli infantary brigade that was formed in February 28 1948,when the
Levanoni brigade in the upper Gallelee was divided in two smaller brigades. It
is one of the most famous units in IDF
After the War of Independence the Golani Brigade
participated in a number of reprisal raids in the first part of the 1950s. In
1951 against Syria In October 1955 in a joint operation with the Paratroopers
Brigade against Egypt.
In the 1956 Sinai Campaign the brigade's task was to capture
the area around the city Rafah in the Sinai desert.
have operated all over Israel and even beyond; in Beirut, Lebanon, Syria, and even Uganda
The symbol of the brigade is a green olive
tree with its roots on a yellow background. The colors green and yellow are the
colors of the meadows of the Golan Heights, where the brigade was stationed at
the time of its creation. The olive tree is known for its strong roots that
penetrate and strongly hold the land, that’s why this symbol was chosen. Early
Golani soldiers were farmers, so the strong connection to the land was
important to symbolize. For this reason, Golani's soldiers are wearing brown
berets. The brown symbolizes the earth. This is in striking contrast to other
Israeli infantry brigades, who display bright colors (purple, bright green,
As of 2004, Golani operates within the northern border of
Israel and in Samaria (north part, mainly Jenin). During 2004, Golani battalion
reinforced the Givati Brigade in Gaza.
In the upper Galilee located in the north of Haifa at the
Golani Junction stands the Golani Brigade Museum commemorating the brigade and
its heroes.We have been there on our school trip,and it is very interesting.I
think it’s very interesting to know who protected the land,where we live.
Preparing this project I convinced that
Israel Army is really a honor and pride of Israel’s state. I found a lot of
interesting facts which will help me and my friends and classmates to choose
over the life ways in future.One of theese ways is to make a military career in
the Jewish state army, may be even in Golani…
