        2004 data...

        ....the IDF has 186,500 full-time soldiers.

        This includes 141,000 in the ground forces, 36,000 in the air force, and 9,500 in the navy. If it calls up all of its reservists, the IDF can field 631,000 troops.

        .....the IDF has 16 divisions,

        3,700 tanks (down 230 from the previous year), and 7,710 armored personnel carriers (down 290 from the previous year).

        The air force showed a reduction in all its aircraft: combat (518 compared to 538), transport (58 compared to 64), and helicopters (205 compared to 239).
        By comparison, Syria has 289,000 full-time troops, down nearly 90,000 from 2002. It can call up 132,500 reservists and fields 12 divisions.
