Lebanon Media Council: Seeking Israeli Comments Is Illegal (Daily Star-Lebanon)

(Daily Alert)

    Lebanese media outlets are not allowed to seek comments from Israeli officials, Abdul-Hadi Mahfouz, the head of the National Media Council, said last Friday.

Mahfouz was referring to the border shooting that left an Israeli soldier dead earlier this month, and a report that appeared on local station MTV quoting an Israeli military source.

Mahfouz said that seeking a statement from Israeli military officials was against the law and is considered “promotion of the enemy.”
