Tel Aviv - The Israeli military on Wednesday said it had uncovered a plot by the Hamas militant group to spy on soldiers by hacking their mobile phones after posing as women and befriending them on social media.
In a presentation to reporters, it showed photos of the women, some of them scantily clad or wearing stylish sunglasses, along with copies of the flirtatious text messages exchanged with soldiers.
In a short video clip released by the army, an unidentified soldier, whose face was covered by a shadow to protect his identity, said he had been approached by a woman in a Facebook message and struck up a friendship.
“The connection got stronger with time,” he said. At her suggestion, he said he downloaded an application to talk, but the app didn’t work. “Suddenly I discovered that she isn’t a girl. She is Hamas,” he said.
The senior official, speaking on condition of anonymity under military guidelines, said dozens of soldiers had fallen for the trick. “It had potential for great damage."
Does this story strike home? We all know who the Yetzer Hara is and what he REALLY wants, to destroy us and rip us to pieces. Yes, he was given permission by Hashem to "pose as a beautiful woman" and offer us treats, but don't fall for it!
