On Friday evening, Channel 2 News aired an interview with Amos Levinberg, the intelligence officer who was captured by Syria during the Yom Kippur War. This was the first time that Levinberg agreed to be interviewed by the media. Today (Sunday), the footage of Levinberg recalling his capture and interrogation in Syria was released. The video was recorded in 1993, 20 years after the Yom Kippur War.

Levinberg explained his state of mind after he was taken by the Syrians, which he said led him to reveal the biggest secrets of the IDF’s Intelligence Corps. Levinberg said he was aware of the importance of the information that he was providing to Syria but because of his mental state, he cooperated with his interrogators. “It is a terrible feeling but it’s a reality in which there are no feelings,” he said. “You cry a cry with no tears. This was the reality.”
