A motion to lift the court-imposed gag order on an investigation into an undisclosed Jewish terror attack has been submitted to the Petah Tikva Magistrate’s Court, The Jerusalem Post reported on Wednesday.

In the motion, attorney Chai Haber referred to what he said were a number of problematic issues with how the security investigation has been carried out, and how these issues affect human rights.

“It’s a shame that the public can’t know what’s going on, so that there could be transparency and scrutiny, so that we could know that everything is being done by the letter of the law, because right now no one knows what’s going on,” Haber said, according to The Jerusalem Post.

Israeli media have been reporting a "major development" in an ongoing Jewish terror investigation since early this week. But the case is subject to the gag order and details cannot be published.
