Israeli army official seeks lawsuit over Jenin documentary

Sept. 25, 2008 12:18 P.M. (Updated: Sept. 25, 2008 12:18 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - Israeli military Brigadier Avihai Mandelblit sought legal action against a Palestinian filmmaker for "defamation" against the Israeli military, Israel Radio reported on Thursday.

Mandelblit reportedly asked government legal consultant Meni Mazuz to "take judicial action" against director Mohammad Bakri over alleged falsehoods in his documentary, "Jenin Jenin."

A number of soldiers involved in the Jenin military assault in 2002 proposed the lawsuit as a means for to be "compensated for defamation and libel."

Tel Aviv's central court rejected that there was pretext to sue Bakri "personally," even if content in the film libeled or defamed the military or its soldiers.
