Israel’s highest court blocked screenings of a controversial film on Israel’s April 2002 invasion of the Jenin refugee camp. The High Court of Justice injunction prevents “Jenin, Jenin” from being shown in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem this week. The court previously had ruled in favor of director Mohammed Bakri’s appeal that a ban on the documentary-style film violated free-speech rights, but the decision against screening the film came after new appeals were made against it.
