IDF said to probe 1,200 troops without finding source of leaks on Iran ship sabotage

The IDF reportedly launched a massive probe of 1,200 soldiers in a failed attempt to find the source of leaked information reported in foreign media last year about alleged Israeli attacks on Iranian oil tankers. The army’s information security division reviewed the soldiers’ communications. Ten were questioned. Details of the investigation, which ended a few months ago, were first reported by the Kan public broadcaster. The search came in the wake of a Wall Street Journal report from March 2021 that cited “US and regional officials” as saying Israel had used mines and other weapons against at least 12 Iranian ships, mostly carrying oil, that were heading to Syria. #firsthype #IranIsrael
