Representatives of bereaved families criticized the attorney general on Sunday for denying their request to launch a criminal investigation against an Israeli-Arab filmmaker who alleged in one of his movies that the IDF committed a massacre of Palestinian civilians in the West Bank town of Jenin.

Mohammed Bakri's controversial Jenin, Jenin ignited a firestorm upon its release 12 years ago due to the depiction of a massacre allegedly carried out by IDF troops during Operation Defensive Shield.

Israeli authorities banned the screening of the film only to have the Supreme Court overturn the ruling on free speech grounds.
