up Mosad.there resonsible for the Assassinations,Sabotage,psychological warefare and Counterterrorism.Haifa does not exsist in the armed forces but
who knows for sure
It's not THAT secret. People who live in Israel usually know a lot about its army, since they all have to join it when they turn 18. Though some
units are indeed highly classified. And even known SF units such as Shayetet 13 (sort of like Israeli SEALs) has many operations each year, and all of
those operations remain unknown to the public (until soldiers die).
Some units, very few, are completely unknown to the public. I don't know much about those units, but I heard there are some units that work with the
mossad and the SHABAK (similar to the top secret unit 504). There are also units such as HAMAN Shhakim, many people know about it excistence, but
almost no one knows what this unit does.
BTW, did you know that our SF forces where in Iraq during gulf war 1 & 2? I'm not sure about 2, but I do know that we where searching for scuds
during the first gulf war, and units like Shaldag maybe were sent to Iraq during gulf war 2 too (probably before the war itself).
