Revelation made during libel trial filed by Im Tirtzu against eight left-wing activists who established a Facebook page calling the organization fascist.

The Im Tirtzu organization used private investigators to collect information on human rights organizations, its leader told a court Thursday. Chairman Ronen Shoval said his group also asked investigators to snoop on the lawyers representing those groups.
