YAMAM (Hebrew: ימ"מ‎, an acronym for Special Police Unit (יחידה משטרתית מיוחדת, Yehida Mishtartit Meyuhedet)) is the elite police counter-terrorism unit in Israel. The YAMAM is capable of both hostage-rescue operations and offensive take-over raids against targets in civilian areas. Besides military duties, it also performs traditional SWAT duties and undercover police work.

In Israel the YAMAM is also known as the "Unit for Counter-Terror Warfare" (Hebrew: היחידה ללוחמה בטרור‎). It is part of the Israel Border Police. Its operators and officers are professional policemen on payroll.  YAMAM recruits its members exclusively from Israeli units.

The YAMAM was established in 1974 after the Ma'alot massacre, where a failed operation by IDF special forces units resulted in the 21 children being murdered before the terrorists were eliminated. Since hostage rescue in friendly territory is different from that in hostile areas, it was decided to establish an elite police force, which develops and practices a special CQB (Close Quarter Battle) doctrine for "counter-terrorism" operations in friendly territory and hostage rescue. The YAMAM's operations and tactics are top secret and are rarely photographed or filmed. Very few of the YAMAM's missions are ever publicized.

The YAMAM recently won an international Counter Terror / SWAT competition in Oakland California USA, beating 25 other teams from around the world.

IDF Graduates Largest Ever Medical Doctors Class

The IDF Medical Corps completed the largest medical course in IDF history. The IDF reported that 50 new medical doctors will graduate and be assigned to the various air, sea, and land IDF units.  The new doctors will be assigned to 35 different battalions, of which 17 never had a regular doctor, relying on a paramedic or temporary physician.

IDF MD Doctors Train under fire

The IDF’s Chief Medical Officer, Brigadier General Dr. Nachman Ash, credited an extensive campaign the IDF ran encouraging future soldiers to join the Medical Corps and other enticements that the IDF used to fill the IDF's need for new medical doctors.

Brigadier General Dr. Ash, who gave the IDF’s future doctors their final examination, congratulated them and said: “These are doctors who are fully motivated, they are ready and willing to perform their duty. There is no doubt that from now on, with all the IDF’s field units manned by doctors, the response to our soldiers will also improve accordingly.”
