B’Tselem Loses Supreme Court Bid to Broadcast Names of Children Killed in Gaza

Justices rule that audio clip is of political nature and therefore the Broadcast Authority is authorized to reject it.

The Supreme Court rejected an appeal filed by anti-occupation NGO B’Tselem against the Israel Broadcast Authority’s decision not to approve a broadcast of the names of Palestinian children killed in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge. The justices decided that the broadcast in question is of a political nature, and goes beyond providing information free of context.
