Israel: The truth never

On 30 May, it was announced that Israel is to prosecute a Haaretz journalist, Uri Blau, who demonstrated that senior Israeli officers had authorised the targeted assassination of Palestinians.

Blau drew on 700 classified military documents leaked by Israeli soldier Anat Kamm, who was as a result sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison last year (PN 2540-2541). 

Blau is charged with ‘aggravated espionage’, which carries a maximum sentence of seven years.
