The IDF said on Wednesday it had detained several soldiers and a civilian on suspicion of leaking fatality  figures from the fighting in Gaza over social media before families of the dead or wounded could be formally informed.

A week into ground fighting with Hamas that has killed at least 32 soldiers, some Israelis complain of first learning their relatives were dead through WhatsApp, or of being misled by erroneous messages into believing they were among the toll.
