Caracal Battalion

The Caracal Battalion was founded in the year 2000 conceding to public pressures for the
creation of an intensive combat unit for girls. They are given the name of a desert feline
whose gender is barely distinguishable, and the battalion number signifies the number of
women soldiers who fell in the Palmach Era.

The girls volunteer to become combat soldiers, and must go through two days of mental
examinations and physical challenges before joining, since the course is strenuous and
identical to that of any other exclusively male battalion.

As part of the Southern Command, Caracal men and women secure the Egyptian
border from smugglers, infiltrators, and terrorists.
