Israel’s parliament passed new legislation on Wednesday to crack down on leaks of government information, a move aimed at cracking down on the spread of misinformation on social media and the internet.
The legislation is intended to stop journalists from sharing confidential information with foreign media and journalists who want to use the information to attack the government.
The bill also seeks to clamp down on journalists who publish sensitive information about the government or its officials.
The government has a long history of cracking down against journalists who are critical of the government, with many facing serious charges including incitement and incitement to murder.
The latest legislation is part of an effort to clampdown on these types of journalists who would try to harm the government and its image.
In addition to restricting journalists from publishing confidential information, the bill will allow the government to ban journalists who do not have a permit from entering the country.
The law was approved by the lower house of parliament after a public hearing on the bill.
It was also passed by the upper house, which will vote on the legislation later this week.
The Israeli government has long been criticized for not doing enough to stop the spread, and the latest legislation comes as it tries to stem the spread from the Palestinian Authority, which is run by the Palestinian president.
The Palestinian Authority has not been spared the wave of violence, either, with a Palestinian suicide bomber killed on Tuesday, as well as another two Palestinians who attacked a police station and killed a soldier.
The last of these incidents occurred after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed the controversial security legislation on Tuesday.
The new law would also ban Palestinians from driving or working in certain areas and impose a six-month ban on certain construction activities.
