The Israeli Ambassador to Australia Yuval Rotem was set to meet with Opposition foreign affairs spokeswoman Julie Bishop on Wednesday over the reported suicide of an Australian citizen in an Israeli jail that dominated media headlines over the passed two days.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, ABC quoted Bishop as saying: "That's a matter that I'll raise directly with the Israeli embassy to get an understanding of the basis for it."

"If there are security considerations I can understand it, but if it's just about embarrassing a government agency, then that certainly requires an explanation and I'll be seeking one," she added.
