On Israeli channel 1 TV, the coverage was excellent. Besides a report about the international protest in the news, with footage of the demo in Tel Aviv and background on the prison, there was a long discussion about Khiam in the 'actualia' show that comes before the news.
For the first time, human rights violations in South Lebanon were on the Israeli agenda.
