The Commando Brigade of the Israel Defence Forces has recently established a unit that can set up a field hospital in enemy territory after being airlifted to any location, the military said on Tuesday.

The brigade includes the Egoz, Maglan and Duvdevan special units.

It is in charge of covert operations during routine times and special missions during wartime, according to the IDF, designed to fight deep into enemy territory and far from “classic” battlefields.

For such situations, where it’s impossible to turn back and quickly evacuate the wounded to hospitals in Israel, the brigade—together with the IDF Medical Corps and the Airborne Medical Unit—set up a new special field hospital.

“We know how to provide hospital treatment in every way,” Capt. Y, commander of the Airborne Medical Unit, said in a statement.

That includes an intensive-care unit that operates around the clock, and two operating rooms that can open simultaneously, he added.
