Israeli army warns soldiers of CIA recruitment attempts

JERUSALEM (JTA) – An Israel Defense Forces intelligence department has called on its officers and soldiers to be wary of attempts to recruit them to America’s Central Intelligence Agency. The advisory from the IDF’s information security department, which is part of the intelligence department, calls on Israeli military officers to “be aware and report any unusual incidents,” Israel’s Channel 2 reported Sunday. “Every security body fears having its confidential information leaked,” an unnamed Israeli defense official told Channel 2. It is not known why the advisory was being issued at this time. U.S. intelligence agencies, including the CIA, have attempted to recruit Israelis in the past, according to the report.
