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 possibilities.

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.
