Israel launches military unit to document operations

Jerusalem, June 7 (IANS) The Israeli military has inaugurated a new unit tasked with accompanying combat units on operations to document their work, The Jerusalem Post reported.

Assigned under the IDF Spokesman’s Office, the soldiers have received extensive training in video and still photography, the report said Thursday.

Their footage and images will be made available to both local and international media outlets in real time but sensitive materials will be limited to special users, such as military intelligence and internal probe commissions, reported Xinhua citing the media report.
