"Oketz” (Hebrew for‘Sting’) is the elite canine unit of the IDF. Each combat unit in the army needs the help of dogs, from detecting explosives to cleaning out buildings. Oketz fills this need with soldiers who are trained to work with every combat unit in the IDF, whether it’s with attack dogs, chase dogs, or bomb sniffers.
