The Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee of the Knesset today (Monday) held a quick discussion on the subject of “the struggle of the representatives of the fighters and the bereaved families of the battle in Jenin against the film ‘Jenin Jenin'”. MK Gideon Saar, who chaired the debate, put to the vote a resolution, which will be sent to Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, according to which “the screening of the film and its distribution in Israel should be banned.”
The proposal was unanimously accepted, and it was further stated that the film “constitutes a blood libel against the IDF and the fighters, who acted exemplary in Jenin during Operation Defensive Shield and in the most moral manner.”
MK Elazar Stern, who initiated the discussion in the committee, said: “For 18 years now, representatives of the warriors and bereaved families from the battle of Jenin have been fighting against the film. I call on the Ministry of Defense to appoint a representative on its behalf to lead this issue. On purifying the names of their loved ones and the IDF.
MK Moshe ‘Boogie’ Ya’alon, who served as deputy chief of staff during Operation Defensive Shield, joined Stern’s remarks, saying: “, And we must do all of our above and our authority, including legislation, to end this event.”

The second is to correct the unfounded impression created by the film regarding IDF activity. Behind you. “
