Two Arab residents of east Jerusalem employed by an Iranian TV channel were charged at the Jerusalem District Court on Tuesday with violating IDF censorship.
Reporter Hadar Shain, 34, and his producer, Muhammad Sarahan, 26 were indicted on charges of passing information to the enemy and disclosing sensitive information.
The two are accused of violating a censorship decree during wartime and reporting on the entrance of IDF ground forces into Gaza hours before the media was permitted by the IDF Spokesperson Unit to mention the ground operation.
The suspects denied the charges, maintaining that they merely reported what was being said in the international media.
The two men were arrested on Monday by the Police's National Serious and International Crimes Unit.
