War testimony to be published

An Israeli commission of inquiry into the Lebanon war is expected to begin
publishing testimony it heard next week. Finding in
favor of a petition by a left-wing lawmaker, the High Court of Justice on Thursday ordered the Winograd
Commission to publish testimony by Israeli officials after it’s cleared by
military censors. The first publication, expected Sunday, will largely be testimony by military chiefs. The High Court gave an extension until Pesach for publication of testimony by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and
Defense Minister Amir Peretz.
