website likely based in California posted 100 photos of what it claims are high ranking Israeli Air Force
pilots suspected of war crimes. The website also noted each pilot's rank, date of birth and ID number. Among the 100 was the photo of one female pilot said to be a 24-year-old colonel.
The website's managers claimed they received the information from an anonymous source. The disclosure of the information is meant to assist in the prosecution of the pilots when they leave Israel.
The website's managers thanked their sources and expressed hope they will be able to provide additional details on the pilots which could then be used against them in court.
The website is supposedly linked to hundreds of human rights groups and claims that its operations extend beyond the US.

Spokesperson's Unit said in response that it is aware of the publication which it said was "full of mistakes and is another attempt by anti-Israel groups to hurt Israel's legitimate right to defend itself through false accusations.
