      Anat Kam Sues Haaretz for Revealing Her Identity

      Anat Kam is suing Israeli newspaper Haaretz for 2.6 million shekel on charges of leaking her identity through the IDF documents she submitted to journalist Uri Blau. Kam

      was released earlier this week, after serving just two thirds of her prison sentence for espionage. Kam was convicted of stealing the documents during the period of 2005-2007, when she served in the IDF as a secretary in the IDF's Central Command headquarters. She copied thousands of sensitive documents to a disk-on-key (USB drive) which she proceeded to hand over to reporter Uri Blau of the left-wing Haaretz.
