Opsecs people OPSECS!!!! … if you don’t know what those are and are in the military or love someone in the military it means Operational Security. It’s information our enemies would LOVE to have! This solider could have gotten his entire unit killed. Military personnel can’t always tell you where they are what they are doing or when they will be flying to or from. It’s for their safety and the safety of others. So please DO NOT ask them and if you feel someone int he military is sharing too much information… question them on it.
IDF calls off West Bank raid due to Facebook leak
The Israel Defense Forces called off a raid in Palestinian territory after a soldier posted details, including the time and place, on the social networking website Facebook, Army Radio reported on Wednesday.
The soldier – since relieved of combat duty – described in a status update how his unit planned a “clean-up” arrest raid in a West Bank area, Army Radio said.
“On Wednesday we clean up Qatanah, and on Thursday, god willing, we come home,” the soldier wrote on his Facebook page, refering to a West Bank village near Ramallah.
The soldier also disclosed the name of the combat unit, the place of the operation and the time it will take place. Facebook friends then reported him to military authorities.
The Israeli military spokesman’s office had no immediate comment.
Israel says raids in the West Bank are aimed at detaining militants suspected of planning attacks on Israelis. Palestinian officials say the incursions undermine efforts by the Western-backed Palestinian Authority to enforce law and order in the territory.
