The Israeli military has dismissed 43 members from the elite intelligence 8200 unit. In September 2014, they wrote an open letter protesting Israeli covert activities towards Palestinians, particularly the 2014 military operation in Gaza Strip. In the letter, written in the wake of the Operation Protective Edge, the 10 officers and 33 soldiers wrote that they "refused to take part in actions against Palestinians and refuse to continue serving as tools in deepening the military control over the Occupied Territories."
