Israeli Solider Jailed for Posting Photos on Facebook

Israeli Solider Jailed For Posting Photos on Facebook


An Israeli soldier just received a 19-day jail sentence for posting photos on his Facebook page without permission from his superiors.

The soldier is serving in an elite air force unit, and this case and punishment appears to be the first of its kind. The Israeli army has recently cracked down on sharing photos after finding pics posted to Internet sites, which were taken in clear violation of the photography ban on bases. They're ordering servicemen in sensitive units to remove any photos that they had uploaded onto the Facebook site.

With Google Maps being kicked off military bases, and tons of soldiers blogging and posting photos on networking sites like Facebook, is it a potential security risk? Should there be strict rules for sharing personal information if you're in the military? Was the prison sentence too much?
