On 4 May 2015, Secretariat-partner “Breaking the Silence,” has released its collection of testimonies from over 60 officers and soldiers who took part in the latest Israeli war on Gaza in summer 2014, so called Operation “Protective Edge”.
 
The testimonies, available online at http://www.breakingthesilence.org.il/protective-edge tell the 'inside' story of the Israeli occupation army's indiscriminate fire against civilians, "which directly resulted in the deaths of hundreds of innocent Palestinian civilians."
 
According to the press statement issued on this occassion by Breaking the Silence on 4 May 2015, "rules of engagement relayed to the soldiers were the most permissive" the organization has ever documented.

According to Breaking the Silence, "Many soldiers testified that the orders that they received were to shoot to kill every person sighted in the area."
