An Arab reporter from east Jerusalem employed by an Iranian TV channel is being investigated by the Police's National Serious and International Crimes Unit over suspicions that he violated a censorship decree and reported on the entrance of IDF ground forces into Gaza, hours before the media was permitted to mention the ground operation. An Israel Police spokesman said it was too early to say whether the reporter would be arrested, adding that the investigation was still ongoing.
