Nachal Chareidi (Netzach Yisrael) soldiers today find themselves in the ‘busiest hottest’ sector, Gaza, haven proven their abilities over the years operating in the Jordan Valley sector and more recently along the northern border in the Har Dov area.
According to the brigade commander, Colonel Moti Baruch, while the Gaza area appears quite today, this is a misconception. He points out that a week does not pass without shooting incidents or combat across the border fence. He is proud of his soldiers, who continue to exhibit a commendable level or excellence.
He points out that following the Second Lebanon War, the Nachal Chareidi Brigade earned nine citations and medals, including the prestigious “Itur” and “Mofait” commendations.
In short, over the years, the relatively new fighting unit in the IDF comprised of frum soldiers has taken up its place alongside the veteran units, proving they can do it too, with an added focus on adherence to shmirat mitzvot.
