IDF sets up intelligence ‘back office' for ground units

by Yaakov Lappin

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have recently set up a new centre tasked with analysing and allocating real-time intelligence for front-line units, an Israeli officer stated on 17 November.

Major A (full name withheld), deputy intelligence officer for the 36th Armored Division, said the new centre is based in central Israel and described it as a “back office for the whole manoeuvring effort”.

The centre was activated in November during an exercise by the 36th Armored Division that simulated combat against the Lebanese group Hizbullah and emphasised precise targeting and avoiding collateral damage, according to Maj A.
