Report: NSA gave Israeli military intelligence personal info about relatives of Palestinians in US

The US National Security Agency gave Israeli military intelligence information about Arabs and Palestinian-Americans in the states who had maintained communications with Palestinians in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza Strip, an intelligence analyst revealed in The New York Times on Wednesday.
According to James Bamford, the NSA handed over records of telephone calls and e-mail correspondences between Palestinians and their relatives in the US to Unit 8200, the army's intelligence outfit which has generated headlines in recent days in Israel after a number of its reservist officers signed a letter protesting its methods of information-gathering in the territories.
The revelations came to light thanks to the documents leaked to the press by Edward Snowden, the former NSA analyst wanted by American authorities and who is now in Moscow under diplomatic asylum.
