The Paratroopers Brigade "Tzanhanim", also known as the 35th Brigade, is a unit of paratroopers within the Israel Defense Forces and forms a major part of the Infantry Corps. It has a history of carrying out special forces-style missions dating back to the 1950's. It is currently involved primarily in counter-terror operations within the West Bank.
Serving in the brigade is voluntary and requires passing a one and a half day physical test. The IDF has three reservist Paratrooper brigades at any given time, consisting of personnel who served their mandatory service in the brigade, and who are mostly in their twenties (aside from officers). These are most likely the most highly-trained reservist's brigades in the IDF.
