Why I Broke the SilenceNadav Weiman - Haaretz - The battalion intelligence officer explained to me that the aim of “mapping” is not actually to gather intelligence. He told me to throw away the maps that we had sketched, and to delete the images from the camera. At first I didn`t understand. If the information we collected was not important, why were we sent to wake families in the middle of the night? In the end I figured it out. As my commander explained to me, the aim of this operation, as with many others that I carried out throughout my service, was to create “a sense of persecution” among the Palestinian population.
