Incident of the Week: Israeli Soldier Posts Details of Planned West Bank Raid on Facebook

This week the Incident of the Week title decisively goes to the Israeli soldier who updated his status on Facebook to identify the secret military raid on a town in the West Bank.  His status apparently read: “On Wednesday we clean up Qatanah, and on Thursday, god willing, we come home” and provided the exact time of the raid.  After detecting the clear breach of OPSEC, the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) canceled the raid and jailed the soldier for 10 days.

The IDF has apparently begun distributing posters depicting a fake Facebook page with friend requests from Iranian and Syrian presidents as well as a Hezbollah chief with the question: “You think everyone is your friend?”
