Snapshot is a unique project that offers us a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the IDF and the other security forces as they have never been viewed before.
Commentator Yoav Limor and photographer Ziv Koren were given exclusive access, allowing them to bring us an unfiltered view of Israel’s real war over our homeland – from covert attacks in Syria and the battle against terror to defending the borders.
Their work also reveals the real war of daily struggles – for the advancement of women in the military, to integrate the ultra-Orthodox, to absorb immigrants and disadvantaged youth. It documents the IDF’s humanitarian aid missions to disaster sites around the world and the technological breakthroughs that have transformed Israel into a start-up nation.
Snapshot presents an unprecedented insider’s view of some of the most exclusive and secretive IDF units: Sayeret Matkal and Shaldag (General Staff and air force commando units), technology units of the intelligence division, and the Shabak (Israel Security Agency).
The book also offers previously unpublished stories and photos from the war on terror, and border operations against Hezbollah, Hamas, and ISIS.
