Exposed: 200 Israeli army offices suspected of war crimes in Gaza

As you might have heard by now, anonymously, some have decided to follow the famous Wikileaks trend and expose 200 Israeli war criminals whose hands are soaked with the blood of Palestinian children, women and the elderly who got massacred during Israel’s war on Gaza, in the winter of 2008/9 (Operation Cast Lead).

Although the exposed information does not stand close to the details exposed by Wikileaks about U.S. war crimes in Iraq, but the fact that this is the first time such an information is exposed marks the beginning of more unexpected and unpleasant news to the Israeli officials. We believe that it is only a matter of time before we see more information exposed, which can be more repulsive than what we saw already.

The exposed information (website now closed) triggered Israeli high officials and high-ranking officers from all Israeli security departments to go after the websites that published the information. So far, the original websites were removed completely and other documents' publishing websites decided to remove the material and close the users’ accounts. However, the publisher of the website started an alternative website and republished all the informations again.
Redress is another example. After publishing the material on Scribed, it was removed and its account deleted.

Because this type of information is very important to expose, Sabbah Report is jumping in the wagon and publishing the material for its readers.

We don't expect that the material will be available for long on the current host, but a backup is always ready to republish, so let's play the game of cat and mouse.

Following are the names, photographs and other details of 200 Israeli military commanders of various rank suspected of war crimes during Operation Cast Lead against the people of Gaza, which resulted in the murder of more than 1,400 people, primarily civilians, including over 340 children. The information was received anonymously, presumably from someone with links to the Israeli armed forces.

The officers listed below "held positions of command at the time of the attack" on Gaza and therefore "bear a distinct personal responsibility" for war crimes and crimes against humanity committed against the people of Gaza. They range from low-level field commanders to the highest echelons of the Israeli army. "All took an active and direct role in the offensive."

By publishing the names of these people, the source wishes to draw attention "to individuals rather than the static structures through which they operate."

The source states: "We are aligning people with actions. It is to these persons and others, like them, to which we must object and bring our plaints to bear upon." (Redress)
