Assange: Cables to be released on Israel, 2nd Lebanon War

December 23, 2010 09:49

Wikileaks will release cables concerning Israel, the Second Lebanon War and the Mabhouh assassination in the next six months, its founder Julian Assange said in an interview with Al Jazeera on Wednesday.

Assange said only a small number of documents related to Israel have been published so far because newspapers in the West that had exclusive rights to publish the material were hesitant to publish sensitive information about Israel.

When asked if the files related to Israel deal with the July 2006 war in Lebanon, Assange said, "Yes there is some information about that and these files were classified as top secret," and added that there are also diplomatic files about how "Mossad agents used Australian, British and European passports to travel to Dubai."

Assange also said that some of the files regarding Mossad, of which he says there are 2,500, deal with "the role of Mossad in killing Lebanese military leader in Damascus by sniper bullets."
