Yamam stands for Special Police Unit. In Israel it is also called "The Unit for Counter-Terror Warfare" (היחידה ללוחמה בטרור). The Yamam answers to the department of defence central command and belongs to the civilian Israel Police forces on paper, rather than the military, but is actually independent in many ways. Its operators and officers are professional policemen on payroll, always with combat experience from their military service within the Israel Defense Forces. Yamam recruits its members almost exclusively from Israeli special forces units. traditionally the YAMAM recruits only from Israel's top 7 units (Matkal/Sheldag/Duvdevan/Shayetet/Egoz/Maglan/Yael) but exceptions are often made and many recruits come from Palsar, LOTAR and YAMAS.
