UPDATE 24 March 2016: I’ve added the full 13 minute report with English subtitles at the end of the post. Scroll down.
Why is Breaking the Silence gathering confidential army information? Why is an organisation allegedly focused on human rights collecting secret military information?A short version of the explosive investigation that aired on Israel's Channel 2 News.

Breaking the Silence are caught asking serving soldiers for classified information about current operations including tunnelling near the Gaza border: nothing to do with human rights.
This video is causing a complete meltdown for the anti-Israel Breaking the Silence NGO. They, allegedly, help IDF soldiers report human rights abuses to the international media and the international organisations that fund them. The IDF has an excellent record at internal policing of ethical transgressions by soldiers so it’s not clear why Breaking the Silence are needed or why nearly all their testimonies are anonymous and reported internationally rather than in Israel.
Big thanks to My Truth for subtitling excerpts of this video. The full report was 13 minutes. This story has legs. Lots of people are wondering if Breaking the Silence should be arrested for espionage.
Update: the full report.
