Ms Kam is alleged to have obtained documents concerning apparently extra-judicial killings of Palestinian militants.

According to the Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI), the Israeli public are being denied their basic right to information on trials and events taking place in their midst.

"Whatever the rationale for the order...it seems its only purpose is to violate Israelis' right to information, hinder freedom of the press and stymie public debate on the case" ACRI's Chief Legal Counsel, Dan Yakir, said.

"Defence of national security is a legitimate objective but censorship must not be used to prevent the Israeli defence forces from being held responsible if they broke the law," the Paris-based media freedom organisation Reporters Without Borders said.


Looks like more and more foreign organizations are finally waking up and pointing the finger at the white elephant. It's about time news agencies started carrying these topics.

Not that I expect much will change inside of the regime as a result of this, but it's the kind of disclosure that will lead to even greater revelations about Israel as things progress.
