Israel

The Israeli press enjoys a real freedom, which is rare in the Middle East region. Nonetheless, despite the existence of free and independent media, journalists face a "military censorship" and must deal with censorship orders. Abuses of the Israeli army against Palestinian and foreign journalists are common, especially while covering demonstrations.
