JERUSALEM – Israel's military has condemned the publication of names and photographs of 200 Israeli soldiers by a website that calls the troops "war criminals."
The site also published the addresses and ID numbers of many of the Israelis, who it said had participated in the offensive Israel launched in Gaza in late 2008.
The Israel Defense Forces said in a statement Friday that the military "deplores the publication of personal details of hundreds of IDF soldiers and officers, without any factual basis whatsoever."
According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, the website was put up earlier this week by anonymous activists in Britain and hosted by a U.S.-based Web service, which took it down by Friday, citing "breach of terms."

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel's military says Gaza militants have fired a military-grade rocket into Israel, causing light damage and no injuries.
Militants from inside Gaza regularly fire small rockets they manufacture themselves and only rarely use military-grade projectiles such as the relatively powerful Grad launched early on Friday.
None of the armed groups in Hamas-ruled Gaza immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
An Israeli airstrike this week killed two senior members of one such group, the Army of Islam. Another faction released a video in Hebrew threatening retaliation for their deaths.
Rocket fire from Gaza has sharply declined since Israel's offensive in the coastal strip ended in early 2009.
