Israeli whistleblower Anat Kamm is released from prison

Anat Kamm, the former Israeli soldier convicted of leaking documents that led to the publication of an investigative report on IDF misconduct, was released from prison on Sunday after serving two years of a four-and-a-half-year sentence.

Inter alia, the documents Kamm leaked led to revelations that the IDF had continued carrying out extra-judicial assassinations after the Supreme Court outlawed the practice.

Thanks to an unprecedented media blackout in 2010, the case made headlines around the world. Haaretz journalist Uri Blau, after hiding in London, was also convicted in the affair, although not sentenced to jail time.
