About Golani Brigade

The Golani Brigade was founded on February 22nd, 1948, three months before the founding of the State of Israel. It is considered the first combat brigade of the IDF and was stationed in the valleys and hills of the Lower Galilee in northern Israel.

These days, when the IDF takes on its most demanding missions, the Golani Brigade is one of the first brigades to be called up. Golani took on much of the fighting during the Second Intifada and the Second Lebanon War. During Israel’s recent Operation Cast Lead, Golani was stationed in one of the toughest battle zones in the region.
