EXCLUSIVE: First ever exposure of Duvdevan unit.
This is the first time ever a photographer allowed to document the secretive Israeli Duvdevan Special Forces unit during training. The unit established before the beginning of the first Intifada, with a mission to prevent hostile terrorist activities in the West Bank. The idea was to build a small unit with unique capabilities of blending into urban territory. Duvdevan's fighters specialize in being able to camouflage themselves as Palestinians (clothes, language, customs, etc). Since its establishment, Duvdevan soldiers have executed thousands of operations across the West Bank. The unit's fighters follow its motto: 'Getting everywhere, anyway, anytime'. The unit's activity is greatly appreciated in Israel, though its operations and faces of its soldiers remain hidden from the public.
