Kfir Brigade

The Kfir Brigade is the youngest and largest brigade in the Israel Defense Forces.

The brigade was established in 2005 out of a collection of battalions - Nachshon, Shimshon, Haruv, Duchifat, Lavi and Netzah Yehuda. The brigade was created as a result of the need to combat Palestinian terrorism in Judea and Samaria.

The brigade specializes in anti-terror operations and urban combat and stands at the forefront of the IDF's determined fight against terrorism.
