Operation Pillar of Defense


As part of our mission, we have vowed to support Israel’s brave soldiers at all times, at peaceful as well as challenging and fateful moments.

In response to the thousands of rockets that have been raining down on Israel’s citizens, a joint operation of the IDF and the Israeli Security Agency brought about the targeted killing of Ahmed al-Jabari, the head of Hamas’ military wing. Jabari committed and commanded many attacks against Israel, including the abduction of SFC Gilad Shalit in 2006. The IDF is currently in the midst of preparing the troops for a ground operation.

As always, our brave men and women in uniform are able and ready to protect the Jewish homeland. While the IDF soldiers defend Israel’s southern and northern ­­­borders, the FIDF family remains firmly committed to standing with them and providing support with all our hearts.
