Court extends remand of Arab journalist, producer for ignoring censorship

The Petah Tikva Magistrate's Court extended the remand of Hadar Shahin and Mahmoud Sarhan, an Arab reporter and his producer who are charged with violating an IDF censorship decree during a time of war. Police from the National Serious and International Crimes Unit arrested the two on suspicion that they broadcast the entrance of IDF ground forces into Gaza to an Iranian TV channel hours before the media were permitted to mention the ground operation. Their remand was extended by six days.
