Tel Aviv Police are probing the theft of hundreds of classified documents from
nonprofit organization Yesh Din, which investigates violations of the legal
rights of Palestinians in the territories.
Police said Wednesday that
they had no particular suspects in the case, but were investigating all
Neither of the Yesh Din offices in Tel Aviv showed signs
of a break-in, leading to some speculation that the theft was an inside job,
possibly by a mole planted by a rightwing organization. The organization
reportedly caught wind of the theft when it was approached on Tuesday by
reporters from two papers, Makor Rishon and Yisrael Hayom, who asked them to
respond to content found in the unreleased documents. Until then, the documents
had only been accessible to a select number of Yesh Din employees. Yesh Din
declined to comment on the investigation.
