Israel lifted a 9-month-old gag order on the case of two Israelis who crossed into the Gaza Strip and were taken by Hamas. One of them, Avraham Mengistu, was an Ehtiopian Israeli. The other, who is still unnamed, is a Beduin.

On today’s episode, we talk about the strategic implications of the missing Israelis with INSS scholar Kobi Michael. Then, we discuss the implications for the Ethiopian community with reporter Ben Hartman, and examine the use of gag orders with +972 magazine’s Michael Schaeffer Omer-Man.
