An Israeli technology news feed is reporting a massive change in who can use civilian and private biometric data in that nation now at war.

Calcalist says a slate of new data powers are moving through the national legislative body, the Knesset, as regulatory changes and memoranda of law.

If the military, law enforcement and intelligence branches get what they want – and courts don’t push back – the government will gain video surveillance previously only seen in authoritarian regimes.

A Calcalist article says the redistribution of access authority approved by the Knesset is not just broad, across government agencies, but also deep. The motivation “is to reverse past [government] decisions.”
