The Israel Defense Force’s intelligence chief reprimanded the head of its mapping unit after top-secret maps detailing the southern Lebanon security zone and Israel’s northern border blew off a truck driving in Israel. The Israeli daily Ha’aretz said a civilian driving behind the car saw what happened and tried to overtake the truck to alert the soldiers. The truck stopped and the soldiers began recovering the maps.
