3 IDF soldiers held for WhatsApp leak

The military police arrest three soldiers who they say are behind leaking the names of 13 slain Golani soldiers on the social media application WhatsApp before the families were notified, Channel 2 reports.

A number of relatives and close friends heard the tragic news via a message, hours before the army contacted them officially.

In addition, some names were mistakenly added to the list, leading families to believe they had lost loved ones.
