IDF Accidentally Reveals Secret Bases

Israeli Defense Force’s Home Front Command accidentally uploaded a map of COVID-19 testing facilities across the country which also disclosed locations of classified bases which was posted on their website.

The map showed not only IDF bases, but also highly classified military intelligence and air force bases with complete boundary lines and names. 

The classified information was discovered by Israeli news outlet Haaretz who reported it to the IDF.

The map was published on the National Emergency Portal site as part of the IDF’s in cooperation with the Ministry of Health’s COVID-19 response. 

The IDF highly guards the location of their bases and was even forced to ban the mobile game Pokemon Go in 2016 out of fear that the game’s GPS feature might reveal the coordinates.
