A number of people in Israel have recently been tweeting their opinions on the crazy story on the Israeli government’s Twitter account, with one user writing that he has not seen anything like it in over 10 years of using Twitter.
Another user said that he used to be a journalist, but then changed his mind and started using Twitter as a hobby.
Another said that while it is possible to get to the top of the Israeli society with the right amount of intelligence and the right level of connections, he has no reason to believe that the top brass of the government are smart enough to know what they are doing, and instead believes they are merely following orders from the foreign media.
However, a number of other users have also commented on the bizarre account.
One user who used to work for the Israeli news agency, Meir Amitov, wrote that it was a great story, but he could not understand why someone who was once a journalist would want to use it as a source for their story.
A number of users wrote that the Israeli military has been manipulating the news cycle for many years, and that their current obsession with the Syrian war was not a new phenomenon, but rather a new trend in Israeli politics.
The IDF has been accused of manipulating the media since the 1970s, when it was accused of attempting to undermine the Israeli Labour Party in an effort to discredit its founding member, Avraham Burg.
The army also was accused by human rights groups of manipulating public opinion and pushing false information during the 1967 Six Day War.
A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defense, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai, said on Twitter that he had no comment on the tweets.
In 2014, the Israeli cabinet approved the establishment of the Military Intelligence Directorate, which is responsible for analyzing media reports on Israel and its military operations, as well as monitoring foreign news outlets.
The IDF also has a special unit to monitor and investigate cybercrime.
In the past year, the IDF has intensified efforts to censor online content.
Last month, the army announced that it had arrested three Palestinians who allegedly hacked into the online news service Ynet and published thousands of internal documents.
In November, the defense ministry announced that the IDF would start monitoring websites belonging to a number on Facebook and Twitter.
