Ben Gurion International Airport’s wireless service reportedly is blocking travelers from selected left- and right-wing political websites.
Websites blocked at the Israeli airport include Breaking the Silence, Peace Now and the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel, Haaretz reported Thursday.
Haaretz quoted Israel Airport Authority officials as saying that its instructions to its wireless provider, 012, are to block bandwidth-heavy sites and pornography and gambling sites. IAA also noted, however, that 012 uses a filter that categorizes controversial sites.
According to Haaretz, 012 had no comment.
