The Paratroops

Sayeret Duvdevan is the IDF Special Forces undercover unit tasked with operations in the Territories.

The unit is different to the other undercover units (reporting to the intelligence gathering organisation) in that it is not strucutred for long term undercover agent placement, infiltration or on the ground undercover lengthy surveillance but for quick hit and run operations.

It is one of only a small number of Israeli Special Forces units that has a purely Counter-Terrorist (CT) role.
