Chairman of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Security Committee, MK Ze’ev Elkin (Likud), spoke with senior sources within the Israel Security Agency (ISA, Shin Bet), regarding an investigation of intelligence leaks following the committee’s meetings, Israel Hayom reports.

According to the reports, Elkin asked the ISA to examine steps necessary for finding out which members of the committee leaked details from the meetings during Operation Protective Edge. Elkin emphasized that he takes it extremely seriously when MKs do not stand by their responsibilities and leak confidential information heard in deliberations behind closed doors.
