    New Book reveals identity of soldiers giving testimony as to crimes in the occupation. One corroborated story is discussed. This is big! However, the author is incorrect in thinking that Breaking the Silence is the first to do these things. Iraq Veterans Against the War also pursued the same strategy.

    They haven't testified before any official court.

    Also, some of these speakers have already exposed themselves years ago.

    Most of the speakers are workers for "Breaking the Silence" so I'm sure IDF officials are familiar with all of them.

    A conscript from the Givati Brigade, for example, describes how troops in the company operating next to his inside Gaza during 2008 had talked about an event earlier in the day. After knocking on the door of a Palestinian house and receiving no immediate answer, they had placed a "fox" – military slang for explosives used to break through doors and walls – outside the front door. At that very moment, the woman of the house had reached the door to open it. "Her limbs were smeared on the wall and it wasn't on purpose," the soldier recalls. "And then her kids came and saw her. I heard it during dinner after the operation, someone said it was funny, and they cracked up from the situation that the kids saw their mother smeared on the wall..."

    Nice bunch.
