The Commander of Unit 8200, Brig.-Gen. A. (full name withheld), sent a letter to members of the unit, after 43 serving reservists claimed that systematic ethical breaches were taking place and said they would refuse to serve.

In the letter, Brig.-Gen. A. said problems should be brought up with superior officers, not in the media. He provided an example of an officer who had a moral dilemma and reported it to his commanders, who successfully helped him deal with the issue.

The IDF has not yet made a decision on whether and how to discipline the reservists, saying the issue is still being examined.
