The ground forces (GF) are the main and most numerous branch of the Armed Forces of Israel and are intended for the defeat of enemy forces during offensive or defensive operations from various directions. The main task of the GF is to ensure the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state during possible military conflicts in the region.

The key strategic formation of the Israeli ground forces is the military district. With the start of hostilities, it is transformed into a front, and the headquarters of the army corps are expanded into a war complement. The highest tactical formation of the ground forces is the division.

Direct control of the ground forces is carried out by the commander through the command of the GF and the headquarters located on the territory of the base of Bar Lev (Kiryat Malachi, 35 km south of Tel Aviv).

The main objective of the command of the GF during peacetime is to organize combat training of formations and units of the ground forces, to maintain them in combat readiness, as well as to ensure their daily activities. The General Staff of the Israeli Armed Forces, to which the commanders of the three military districts: North, Central and South are directly subordinate, is responsible for the overall operational management of the permanent alert and reserve units. They report to the Army Command only on combat training issues.

The land forces consist of: divisions – 11 (territorial – 5, armoured – 4, motorized infantry, airborne); separate territorial brigade and artillery regiments of brigade personnel – 8.

The weaponry of the GF consists of: battle tanks – about 2,800 (Merkava Mk2, Merkava Mk3, Merkava Mk4 and others); armoured personnel carriers and armoured combat vehicles – about 7,000 (BTR M113, Hamer and Akhzarit); field artillery guns, mortars and MLRS (100 mm and above) – over 2,900 units; anti-tank weapons – up to 2,500; anti-aircraft guns – over 3,500 units.

At present, the personnel in the GF numbers approximately 130,000, and after mobilizing the reserve, the number is increased to 515 thousand troops.

The Israeli armed forces have established territorial units to perform security and control tasks in the occupied territories, to combat terrorism, to protect and defend parts of the State border, and to prevent cases of illegal crossing and smuggling. Depending on their mission, they may report directly to the military district command or be part of one of the formations.

Five territorial divisions have been formed in the ground forces, which in peacetime include three to five territorial brigades or separate battalions. As a rule, territorial brigades in wartime are formed at the expense of conscription of reserve servicemen. The structure of the territorial division includes units and support units, such as a communications battalion, reconnaissance battalion, medical unit, as well as logistics support units.

The reason for the establishment of the territorial units was the absence of a border service in the country, hence the functions of guarding the state border are entrusted to the armed forces. However, the performance of such tasks by combat units and units leads to the diversion from basic functions, which negatively affects their training.

The Army consists of the following types of troops: armoured, motorized infantry (infantry) and airborne, artillery, engineering, intelligence, as well as military police, communications, missile artillery and logistics services.

The armoured forces are the main striking force of the ground forces. They are highly resistant to the damaging factors of modern weapons and are used mainly to carry out offensive operations on the main directions as part of the strike groups, defence operations in the second echelon and reserve for counter-strikes and defeating the enemy’s counter-penetration force, as well as in the first echelon to strengthen the activity and stability of the defense.

Motorized infantry and airborne units are capable of carrying out their tasks in a variety of environments and operating in the following ways: in the main or secondary direction, in the first or second echelon, as well as in the reserve. In the Israeli Armed Forces, the motorized infantry and airborne divisions consist of one high-readiness brigade and four reserves.

In addition, sabotage and reconnaissance groups of various purposes can be formed from the composition of the airborne formations to perform tasks behind enemy lines, including in the interests of the Joint Special Operations Forces Command (JCFOR) established in 2011.

Artillery is an important means of targeting the enemy. It is designed to suppress and/or destroy the enemy’s main firepower, its command posts, communications centres, tanks, BMPs and APCs, anti-tank systems, destroy its fortifications, remotely mine the terrain, counter-battery combat, light support for combat, and aerosol (smoke) operations screens, as well as other tasks.

The country’s ground forces intelligence units are designed to collect information about the armed forces of a potential enemy, provide reconnaissance data for units and subunits, counter penetration by militants into the Israeli territory, target combat aircraft, helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles, destroy important objects behind enemy lines during raids, monitor the situation in the border zone, collect information about the actions of a potential enemy.

A characteristic feature of the Israeli intelligence units is their widespread use for raid purposes.

The engineering troops provide appropriate support for units and formations of the ground forces during combat operations.

The communications service is intended for the deployment and operation of communications systems (including computer systems), as well as for the organisation of sustainable and continuous management of troops in all combat activities.

The missile and artillery armament service perform the following functions: maintenance and storage of all types of operational-tactical and tactical missiles and their warheads, delivery of missile weapons to the troops, providing units and subunits with artillery weapons, equipment, and ammunition, repair of faulty weapons and military equipment.

The logistics support service provides timely provision of material and technical means to the troops and the organisation of the evacuation of the wounded from the battlefield.

The Israeli military leadership considers operational and combat training as the most important condition for maintaining a high level of combat readiness of the ground forces. Military combat training activities are carried out on the basis of an operational and combat training plan, as well as taking into account the specifics of the military and political situation in the region and are aimed at solving the following tasks: preparing reserve units for participation in operations, maintaining troops in border areas in a condition that provides reliable protection of the Israeli territory; increasing the level of combat readiness of headquarters and troops; improving the operational and mobilization deployment system of units and formations, and maintaining their combat readiness for participation in local conflicts.

Combat and operational training of the ground forces is designed as a one-year cycle and is carried out in the form of command and staff training and exercises, tactical or tactical drill exercises under the leadership of commanders or command units, standing at a higher level.

The combat training of personnel includes four stages: basic; by specialty; as part of the brigade, unit and platoon, and training as part of a company and a battalion.

The permanent combat readiness divisions, as a rule, conduct one exercise every two years with live fire and one command post training, while brigades and battalions conduct exercises annually.

During company and battalion manoeuvres, Israeli units primarily practice operations in conditions of military conflicts and against the background of special operations. Meanwhile, considerable attention is paid to working out the issues of combating subversive groups and fighting in the settlements, actions are being worked out in conditions when the enemy actively uses anti-tank weapons, MANPADS and MLRS.

In addition, military personnel are more actively studying the combating terrorist groups’ tactics. During the exercises, the personnel of the GF reconnaissance units and the special forces units pay special attention to work out issues for countering terrorist groups that have entered the country, releasing their hostages, and also protecting important industrial facilities.

According to Israeli military experts, the main threats to the country’s security at the moment are rocket attacks on the rear regions and terrorist attacks, for which the naval forces are preparing for unconventional wars in the conditions of densely built areas, typical of various settlements (from villages to large cities). It is noteworthy that the duration of the armed conflict involving the Israeli Armed Forces may last up to 30 days.

Formations and units of the Israeli ground forces are divided into on-duty personnel and reserve.

On-duty personnel formations are fully staffed with personnel, weapons and military equipment and are ready at any moment for military operations in the area of responsibility of the military district, or for deployment to another front, while reserve formations have only sufficient weapons and military equipment. However, only personnel reduced by 10-15% can maintain weapons and equipment in combat readiness, as well as when measures to ensure the timely deployment of troops when mobilization is declared.

According to the combat readiness category, formations and units of the ground forces are divided into high-readiness formations, as well as the reserve of the 1st and 2nd stages. In peacetime, high-readiness formations and units are fully manned, supplied with weapons and equipment up to almost 100%, the reserve of the first stage is manned no less than 50%, weapons and military equipment sitting at almost 100%, and the second stage reserve is manned with no less than 10-15% with weapons and military equipment at 80-90%. The military equipment of the high-readiness units and reserve of the first and second stage is completely filled with fuel and lubricants and loaded with ammunition.

The following standards have been established for transferring formations and units of the ground forces to a state of “full combat readiness”: for high-readiness formations – 6 hours (for formations and units on alert – 2 hours), for reserve formations of the 1st stage – 36 hours, and of the 2nd stage – 72 hours. The reserve personnel are assigned to those units in which they can arrive within 12 hours after the announcement of mobilization. If they’re abroad, the arrival time is increased to 2 days.

The Israeli military and political leadership are carrying out a set of measures as part of a five-year programme for the development of the national armed forces, known as the Gideon Plan, including the ground forces until 2020.

The General Staff (GS) carries out the task of updating the armoured vehicle fleet: instead of obsolete tank models (M60A1/ AZ, Patton, Merkava Mk1, Merkava Mk2), Merkava Mk4 tanks equipped with the Trophy active armour protection system are being acquired. In addition, the military leadership decided to abandon the continued development of the Merkava project, and at the present stage of R&D are developing new prospective models of armoured vehicles.

Engineers and developers of new equipment plan to achieve a twofold reduction in the combat weight of the new model, and as a result of further digitalization of the equipment, reduce the number of crew members to two people. Completion of work on the creation of new equipment and the beginning of the rearmament of the Israeli GF, with a new armoured platform of a modular type is scheduled for 2024.

According to the development plan, the Lance operational-tactical missiles of two separate artillery divisions have been decommissioned.

In exchange, it is planned to supply the universal Lynx MLRS system, which allows the installation of two containers on the same launcher, each with six M26 missiles or 20 122-mm Grad missiles (range of 20-40 km), or LAR-60 missiles (45 km) and four 300 mm Extra (120-150 km), or one operational-tactical missile Delila (range of 250 km).

A new data transmission and target designation system has been put into operation, which provides the command with the necessary information to make operational decisions in real time. It also makes timely updates to the data and carries out operational calculations, and enhances the ability to interact between the military branches, units and formations.

Small-sized reconnaissance UAVs for tactical purposes are being developed, in order to use unmanned aerial vehicles for reconnaissance support of the ground forces. At present, the Skylark UAV (manufactured by Silver Arrow, a subsidiary of Elbit Systems) is widely used by the ground forces.

The special artillery unit of the GF adopted the Harop reconnaissance-strike UAV, designed for air reconnaissance and destruction of enemy ground (or surface) targets. The UAVs are launched from a container-type mobile launcher using a solid fuel accelerator, after which the UAV unfolds its wings, starts a mid-flight turbojet engine and starts flying.

A special feature of the drone’s combat application as an attack vehicle is the possibility of directing it to a target in manual or automatic mode and detonating it at the moment of contact.

Range of usage is up to 180 km, maximum flight speed is 200 km/h, maximum take-off weight is 135 kg, maximum flight duration is 6 hours. The payload includes an assortment of equipment weighing up to 10 kg and a separate container with explosives weighing up to 17 kg.

In addition, Hermes 900 (Kochav) UAVs are used during hostilities to support the ground forces units.

Israeli military experts do not confirm or deny the capabilities of the Hermes 900 and Heron-TR UAVs (organizationally part of the Air Force) to deliver high-precision air strikes with air-to-ground missiles.

The special unit of the engineering troops Yakhalom received the new special equipment – the robotic platform Talon-4, made in the USA, which is used to search for, study and neutralize explosive devices in underground tunnels and closed structures.

New models of infantryman’s individual protection kits were supplied to the GF, which includes a new modification for the bulletproof vest, helmet, special goggles and ear protection. The troops received about 4,000 new sets and later it is planned to equip all infantry units with them.

The command of the Israeli Armed Forces, following an assessment of the military operations of the motorized infantry units, decided to esblish additional units in the motorized infantry battalions – artillery support teams. Each of them will have a ground fire control team and an aviation liaison team, and they will be under the command of the most trained artillery officers.

The purpose of the forming of such groups is to improve the capabilities of the motorized infantry divisions to conduct artillery reconnaissance and engage the enemy, to improve the interaction between the motorized infantry and artillery divisions, as well as with the army aviation. Their main task will be to plan the combat use and the management of artillery units that are part of the battalion, the timely discovery of the positions and destruction of enemy artillery, and the adjustment of artillery fire and army aviation operations.

Thus, the military and political leadership of Israel attaches paramount importance to the development of the ground forces. Organizational-staffing and operational-tactical activities are carried out as part of the five-year programme of development of the Armed Forces of the country “Gideon”, which lasts through the end of 2020.

    • LR captain

      one hand do not like the war hawk attitude on the other hand, I am glad to you starting to like south front. But like i keep sayings nothing wrong with IDF troops is just your top brass that has their heads up their asses.

        I’d like to hear it LR, go ahead mate. I respect your opinions.

        • LR captain

          gantz states that his administration will be different.
          Trump is calling gantz a dictator and states their will be no peace while gantz is in charge.
          on same day bibi was pretty told that yes is gonna have to stand trial (bibi loose political power)
          israel extended gaza territorial waters and gave more work permits for Palestinians working in israel (gantz party proposed the bill)
          2 days later IDF claims hamas test launch on old fishing boat

          That little bit of drama showed me one thing, peace threw respect may be possible under gantz.
          think about it Gantz is general and even you said your 800 dead IDF could be possible in Gaza operation along with 2000 (wounded my estate) Would you really think Gantz try to avoid that. He knows the political and economic set backs israel would face.

          Gantz will not have support of the 1% rich people in israel but he will have 70% of the vast Israeli population.

          personally if he makes the right choices. (turns down the war escalations) tensions will cool over and a big war can be avoided.

          he knows war is last resort not a daily threat.

          • <>

            I agree LR, but you have to understand we need a change here. I can not accept Hamas rockets falling down on Israeli children, when we strike them back then they hide among the civilian population. War should be the last option, but I don’t see how we can avoid an operation in Gaza vs Hamas, they are like HTS and need to die.

          • LR captain

            they don’t strike children they strike what ever is closest, i think if you turn off the war hawk attatuade they might stop.

            Or here is the other Israel tell qatar to make them stop (qatar own hamas)

          • LR captain

            another way of looking at it is, Gantz build two new desalination plants one for Israelis another for gaza, and Israeli can charge hamas a small fee for water to be pumped into gaza.

            He creates a life line, However Hamas can no longer attack areas north of the strip, as the might be a chance that missile may fall on their desalination plant.

            this means jobs for Israelis for 6 mouths, political sway (Israel is basically providing water to gaza) a small income (fee for water)

          • <>

            It’s a good idea that might work in the future with the PLO under a peace deal, but we can not negotiate with terrorist organization like Hamas or Islamic Jihad in Gaza.

          • LR captain

            But i would also help relive some of the economic issues as well. building some more hydroponics farms can’t hurt as well (the food surplus) Gantz could straight up give the middle finger to trump and create the ME first bio reactor (converts alge into bio diesel)

            however there is one small draw back to all of this. (no its not hamas)

      “Nasrallah invited listeners to look to the sea, and with perfect theatrical timing an
      explosion on the horizon rocked the INS Hanit, an Israeli naval vessel that was hit by an Iranian-produced C-802 Noor guided missile.”
      The missile blasted a hole in the ship and killed four of its crew. Shockingly, the Eilat (Sa’ar 5)-class missile corvette had failed to activate its defense system against radar-guided antiship missiles. An Israeli rear admiral told a reporter from Jane’s that “we were not aware that Hizbullah possessed this kind of missile.”

        Yeah so? mistakes happen. A human error led to that poor incident, we still roasted many more Hezbollahs in the end.

          truckloads of money from the Germans but as for
          revenge he would torment the Palestinians. To
          the Jew, a gentile = a gentile.

          • Jake321

            A great many Germans were killed by Jews who were in Allied Armies. And the Jews did not take revenge on the Palestinians for what happened to them in Europe. What revenge they took was for what Palestinians and other Arabs did to them in the Mideast.

        • Traiano Welcome

          This doesn’t look like human error though.It looks like a systemic problem in the IDF.

          i.e the tendency to repeatedly underestimate the enemy due to a sense of superiority.

          The entire theme of the 2006 war with Hizbollah was about repeatedly underestimating it’s cability, from the start of the war to the very end.

          As Einstein said:

          “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

          … The IDF’s behaviour fits this definition.

          • Jake321

          • Jake321

            Genetics has nothing to do with their land titles. But International Law and a couple of hundred mostly thermonuclear missiles does. Try to get the simplest things correct.

          • Arch Bungle

            Finally, a Zionist admits that genetics has no relation to ownership of the land, after a century of Zionists lying about it.
            But now the Zionist lies about international law, which still grants fake hebrews or Jews NO LAND TITLES IN PALESTINE.
            Why do you lie about even the simplest things?

          • Jake321

            They are there and you and your friends are not. As an aside for your much needed education, being Jewish is not based on genetics. And International Law grants and recognizes Israel’s sovereignty there. And under just those laws, Israel and not you determines land deeds. Don’t like it? Tough. Get a Darwin Award trying to change it.

          • FilastinHuratan

            Which international law are you referring to?

          • FilastinHuratan

            Which international law?

            There are way more people who protect themselves from rockets than not. It’s called Evolution.

          • Arch Bungle

            What a crock of shit.

          • Jake321

            Oh, an Islamist who doesn’t believe in Evolution. How cute. But maybe a brave one with no brains who doesn’t believe in protecting himself from rockets. Guess there will be fewer descendants of his type which will surely improve the gene pool.

          • Arch Bungle

            See now you’re just making shit up. If you’ve got nothing sensible to say, why not just shut up?

          • Jake321

            It is sensible to protect yourself from rockets. And stupid not to. But folk like you don’t seem to understand that. And thus tend to have shorter life expectancies.

            No need for suicide vests. Grad, katyusha and a host of nice Iranian hardware is on offer.
            India will not raise a finger for Israel. Indians dont fight, they just take your money.

      Well, guess even top generals can get killed in war. Ask Islamist Iran about that. They just keep getting their top generals killed all over the place lately.

      • Arch Bungle

        Yep, and the generals of the IDF can die just as well as any ( when they’re actually fighting like Iranian, Syrian and Lebnani generals and not cowering behind air power like the fat faggots they are)

        • Jake321

          LOL…big bad caveman mentality. Please fight that way. Several top Islamist Iranian generals have been wiped of late. How many Israeli generals of late did you say? Do note, dodo, as General Patton said, a solder’s job is NOT to die for his country but to make the other SOB die for his. That holds for generals as well. In a war, matters not how well you lose but you win. But you keep twirling that Damascus sword till Indian Jones calmly drops you with one pistol shot between the eyes.

      That was just one of innumerable local battles in the war. Israel pushed the Egyptians back way into Egypt proper. It encircled was and was on the verge of annihilating a major part of the Egyptian Army and taking Suez City. It was also moving on Cairo. At the same time it had wiped out the Syrian Air Force and was quickly advancing on the outskirts of Damascus. The US fearing direct Soviet intervention to save its client Arab states told Israel to stop. And stop they did on the verge of total victory. Try to get the basics correct. But with you that never happens.

        Did the Jews have nukes in 1973? But it was America that
        saved them, was it not?
        ……
        Oct 19, 1973

        Washington

        The united states is expanding military deliveries to Israel. According to
        American news agencies, the United States is sending Israel about
        20 combat planes a day,
        not counting other military equipment.

        Speaking in Miami Beach, Florida, the head of the Pentagon, James Shlesinger, said that the size of military deliveries to Israel can be increased to any necessary level.

        The government intends to ask Congress for new allocations to pay for the “emergency deliveries” to Tel Aviv. The director of the administration and Budget Agency, R. Ash, has told the-House Budget Committee that the administration will ask for these purposes 500-700 million dollars. But even this huge sum, he said, does not represent the full cost of the Middle East war for the United States.

        According to the “New York Daily News”, Zionist organizations in the United States are continuing to recruit so-called “volunteers” for sending to Israel. Besides citizens of Jewish nationality, Zionists are looking for mercenaries among American military pilots who had fought in the Vietnam war. They are offered large sums of money.

        I suggest you research the battle of Al-Karama, 1968. 200 Palestinian Fedayeen kicked the sht out of 15,000 zionist pig lovers and held them from crossing into Jordan until the Jordan military, now with puffed up chests due to the Fedayeen resistance, decided to join the battle.

        Paper Tigers the israelis are. Proven over and over. As your hyde was saved by kissinger in’73.
        The only thing you zios are good at are, lies, theft and deception.

        When are you people gonna write the next holybook? People are losing their faith in your 3000 yr old series.

    Forbes Magazine 2018:

    Israel with numerous hostile neighbours to contend with, Israel has always felt

    the need to ensure its armed forces are clearly superior to anything they might

    have to face in battle. The Israe Defence Forces are the best equipped, best trained

    and most capable of any in the region according to the IISS, not least because of

    continued massive support from the US. However, the country’s GFP index score

    of 0.3476 still places it behind two others in the region.” (Turkey and Egypt).

      Oh, look. Little Israel is stronger than big bad Islamist Iran. Oh, look. Regardless where it is on that list, Israel is the only one who’s ground forces have tactical nukes. So in total power, Israel is ahead of all those others on the list COMBINED. Times many orders of magnitude.

      Nahhhhhhhh…about half their DNA markers are Mideastern. But so what? The Ashkenazi are not a majority of the Jews in Israel. And even the non-Ashkenazi Jews there will kill you just as dead if you or anyone else ever tried to force any Jews from anywhere out of Israel. Don’t like it? Tough.

      • Pork

        Most israelis, ashkaNazi or not, have dual citizenship, like you. The warmongers of your so-called tribe will either bring devastation to your people, be brought to justice, run away back to their rat holes or burried where they last stood.
        Once the majority of Israelis realise they’ve been cornered militarily and by legal means, Israel will either be destroyed or become a truly inclusive minority Jewish entity. You want peace, Shlomo? So do I. Your tribe has created a vast sea of enemies, including within those you think are allies.
        We Americans will not send our children to die for you psychopaths.

        Israel used to win all its wars by riding on the shoulders of giants like France, UK and the USA. They’ve never won a war all by themselves. That aside, they have won shit all since 1973. And… ehm…. Hezbollah! Say no more, say no more.

      • FilastinHuratan

        They did no beat those armies, they just used their mighty firepower they received from their trans-Atlantic lapdog. Still, in the absence of real facts you need to feel proud of some alternative facts.
