“Israel’s” army bans its soldiers from using facebook, Twitter and other social media sites
The “Israeli” army is banning its soldiers from using social media and networking sites such as Twitter and facebook for what it calls fears on national security leaks.
In justifying the move the Israeli army noted that soldiers post secret photos of bases and compounds and would post future battle plans on social media sites which can be used by liberation movements in the region to counter them.
We are not sure if securing military bases and battle plans is the only reason behind this ban, or if it is also to keep Israeli human right violations against Palestinian civilians behind closed doors as a number of facebook leaks ( one here) another one here ) by “Israeli” soldiers reveal miss treatment and human rights violations of palestinian prisoners.
“Israeli’ army has also established a social media task force which hired social media experts to spread propaganda and halt anything that does not portray “Israel” in a good way or reveal its wrong doings from spreading across social media sites. According to Aljazeera who picked up the story from an Israeli research center Another force was established to mine the internet and trace logs of soldiers activities in social media sites and chat rooms to make sure they did not connect the media .
If you work with the “Israeli” army shoot us an email with what and you friends share inside detention compounds and bases, we will post them.
