Israeli whistleblower

On 30 October, Anat Kamm, 24, was sentenced at Tel Aviv District Court to four-and-a-half years in prison for leaking over 2,000 military documents to Haaretz, an Israeli newspaper.

She had copied the documents, 700 of which were classified, while serving as a junior clerk between 2005 and 2007 in the office of the Israeli commander in charge of operations in the West Bank.

Using the leaked documents, Haaretz demonstrated that senior Israeli officers had authorised the assassination of Palestinians, among other war crimes.
