The IDF’s Military Intelligence has boosted its ranks with additional officers needed to fill new positions in its research, analysis and technological units due to the ongoing upheaval in the Middle East and the perceived increase in threats to Israel.

On Thursday, MI marked the graduation of another course of new intelligence officers. A senior MI officer said that the course was the largest in MI history and saw a 25 percent increase in the number of participants.

“MI is growing due to the changes in Israel’s strategic and operational positions, the need for more technology and the increase in the areas of interest that we follow,” the officer said.

According to the officer, among the new areas of interest that MI has added to its list are Sudan, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Jordan. In addition, it has beefed up the unit that had previously covered the Sinai Peninsula.
