The English-subtitled version of the hidden camera report on Breaking the Silence has been made available by Ad Kan, the group that infiltrated the ultra-leftist organization, and is embedded above.
Channel 2 news broadcast the highly incriminating video, which shows ultra-leftist group Breaking the Silence engaged in what appears like espionage activity against the IDF, last week.
‘Breaking the Silence has crossed another red line,” Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said after the report was aired. “The investigative security forces are looking into the matter.”
The videos were gathered by Ad Kan’s undercover agents over a three-year period.
They show Breaking the Silence activists questioning ex-IDF soldiers – who are, in fact, Ad Kan agents – about details of the IDF’s security operations and equipment along the border with Gaza. The questions relate to how Hamas tunnels were discovered, what special forces were deployed and when, what kind of gun is deployed atop an IDF robot vehicle and more.
None of these questions have anything to do with allegedly immoral activities by the military in Judea and Samaria, which Breaking the Silence claims to be interested in exposing. Instead, they appear to be aimed at gathering intelligence about sensitive IDF operations along the border with Hamas.
In addition, a female Breaking the Silence activist revealed to an agent that she enlisted into the IDF’s Civil Administration in Judea and Samaria with the express purpose of gathering information about it, since she had been in touch with Breaking the Silence before she enlisted.
Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon also said that an investigation into Breaking the Silence was underway. No arrests or interrogations have been announced, however.
Breaking the Silence has received much of its funding from the New Israel Fund.
