Israel Defense Force (IDF) bases in northern Israel are much too easily breached, according to the findings of a recent military inspection.

The IDF Operations Division conducted surprise inspections in Galilee and Golan Heights. Inspection staff easily entered classified areas that were supposed to be guarded and made off with confidential documents and weapons, including machine guns and rifles.

The Katzbia Camp, Pilon Camp, Yiftah Camp, Keren Camp and Shraga Camp, which serves as headquarters for the Golani Brigade, were all successfully infiltrated.

"The IDF regularly carries out stringent security inspections on all bases … The conclusions of the inspection are under review within the units and as is customary, lessons will be learned accordingly and the procedures will be sharpened. Incidents in which failures are found will be handled in a disciplinary manner," an IDF representative told Jerusalem Online
