Recently, the IDF (Zahal) launched a campaign set to bring the IDF (Zahal)’s Official Facebook Page to 200,000 Likes.
The official Israel Defense Forces Facebook page was launched on August 2011, and in less then a year, has reached more than 181,000 Likes. Through the page, we try and show the other sides of the IDF (Zahal), those not necessarily reported by the media, while providing you with real-time updates from the field.
Many things have happened in Israel though out this year, events such as the Gilad Shalit exchange, in which SFC. Shalit was reunited with his family after five years in Hamas’ prison. Among some of the most heart-warming events that occurred since the page was launched, our Facebook page has also seen an on-going escalation with Gaza, terror attacks at the heart of Israeli communities and thousands of rockets aimed at civilians.
