WikiLeaks to release more Israel cables
WikiLeaks will release sensitive leaked diplomatic cables regarding Israel in the coming months, its founder said.
Julian Assange told Al-Jazeera Wednesday that his website will release top secret letters dealing with the 2006 Second Lebanon war, the assassination of a high-level Palestinian official in Dubai suspected to have been carried out by the Mossad, and other Israel-related cables.
Assange claims to have about 3,700 files related to Israel, most from the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv.
He reportedly told Al-Jazeera that few documents involving Israel have so far been published because the newspapers to which he gave exclusive rights to publish the cables were unwilling to publish sensitive information about Israel.
He said he was certain that Israeli intelligence is currently monitoring WikiLeaks closely and denied that there was a deal between Israel and WikiLeaks to keep information on Israel private.
