During a military operation conducted last Thursday morning, soldiers from the Givati Brigade raided Bita Al Fuka, a Palestinian village near Nablus after receiving intelligence on the whereabouts of a man suspected of terrorist activities.

They found him, searched the house and were ready to take him in for questioning and leave..but then one of the IDF’s dog soldiers, accompanied by his fellow soldier from the IDF’s Oketz (canine) unit refused to leave the premises, even when ordered to.

So his IDF handler gave him his head, he went right to the suspects mattress and signaled that there was something of interest within. When the soldiers cut open the mattress, they found the man’s arms and ammo…which may very well link him to several attacks.

If it wasn’t for one stubborn IDF dog, they wouldn’t have found them.
Yasser koach, kelev tov!

The IDF’s dog soldiers in the Oketz unit are a valued part of Israel’s defense forces. Just like their two-legged counterparts, they have their own personal serial numbers and files. And the file includes all the details a commander or Oketz handler might need to know about the dog – where it was born, when it joined the unit, what training it had completed, what operations it has participated in, the dog’s level of operational preparedness, a complete health and fitness profile, and accreditations and commendations the dog has earned.

Yes, the IDF’s dogs have the opportunity to complete advanced training (the norm is six months) and are recognized officially when they perform exceptionally.


Aside from missions like the one above, some are trained to be experts at finding victims of terrorism buried under rubble, as well as in the location of explosives.
