Biranit (Hebrew: בירנית, lit. Fortress) is a military base in northern Israel. It is the headquarters of the Galilee Division of the Israel Defense Forces, and is located around a kilometre from the Lebanese border between Sasa and Netu'a.
The site was originally planned to become a village centre as part of Operation Sof Sof to increase Jewish presence in the Galilee in the 1960s. In 1964 a Nahal settlement was established in the area. It was civilianised in 1967, but did not become a village.
