Ahead of Independence Day, the Shin Bet security agency launched a recruitment drive Monday detailing its operations to protect Israel’s citizens.
In a series of short video clips titled “preserving the peace,” the agency shows how its activities keep Israelis safe morning, noon and night.
“By the time you get to work in the morning, we have analyzed three hours of encoded video that will help catch a terror cell. We operate advanced technologies for locating a warehouse that should be destroyed. We attack the computer of a hostile hacker who felt a little too confident,” the first video says.
“All so you can wait in traffic peacefully.”
In the second video, which begins with footage of kids playing soccer, the Shin Bet shows how its cyber work assists its operations in the field.
“At the end of [afternoon activities], we get to 258 encrypted emails they tried to hide from us. We enlist two agents who give us ‘gold information,’ and we arrest someone who shouldn’t be walking around freely,” says the video, as it moves between shots of a children’s soccer game and agents carrying out an arrest.
“All so your kid can score [a goal] peacefully.”
The final video shows how the Shin Bet allows Israelis to sleep peacefully at night.
“By the time you wake up, we’ve written hundreds of lines of code, taken dozens of pictures with a camera we planted in the heart of a terror organization, and knocked on the door of someone who was sure we’d never get to him,” it says.
“All so you can continue sleeping peacefully.”
The Shin Bet released the videos to mark Israel’s 70th Independence Day, which begins Wednesday evening.
