Report on Channel 2 shows activists of the organization on hidden camera trying to obtain sensitive and classified operational intelligence about the IDF from soldiers.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Breaking the Silence of “crossing another red line” on Thursday evening following an investigative report aired on Channel 2 documenting the NGO’s activists trying to obtain sensitive and classified operational intelligence about the IDF.
The prime minister said that the “security investigative authorities are examining the issue.”
The Channel 2 report claimed that Breaking the Silence worked to place its people in classified units in the IDF in order to gather information that the organization could then use in its activities against “the occupation.” In addition, the report claimed that the NGO’s activists interviewed IDF veterans on issues that do not concern human rights, but rather military secrets.
