Under Israeli law, the identity of R., currently the Shin Bet deputy director, is under embargo, pending the approval of his appointment by the Public Service Nominations Committee.

Twitter users alleged that the information about R., including his full home address, came from “intelligence sources” in Hamas, saying that the information was released in retaliation for the killing of four Hamas terrorists in an Israel Defense Forces raid in Jenin. Palestinian followers commented by wishing R. a swift demise.
