The Field Intelligence Corps was established yesterday as part of IDF Army Headquarters. The commander of the Field Intelligence Corps is Brig. Gen. Amnon Sofrin. The Field Intelligence Corps joins four combat corps in the Army Headquarters: the Armored Corps, the Engineers Corps, the Artillery Corps and the Infantry Corps, as the fifth corps. The corps was formed due to the need of a single professional authority that will concentrate all the field intelligence needs for land combat. All the combat intelligence-gathering units of the Army Headquarters have been subordinated to the new corps.
