      Kfir Brigade is the youngest Infantry Corps brigade in the Israel Defense Forces.

      Recruits to the Kfir Brigade are trained in chemical warfare, urban combat, advanced weaponry and fighting from armored vehicles. The brigade specializes in high profile counter-terror operations, arrests of terrorists, patrols, manning checkpoints and regular security activities.

      After a half year’s training, Kfir soldiers receive a camouflaged beret.

      According to the IDF, a “Camouflaged” soldier is “a fiery combat soldier, who doesn’t give up, [and] who follows his commanders.”

      The brigade’s slogan is “Kfir – Think Camouflaged!”
