Truth, Nothing, But

In April 2002, following a series of Palestinian terror attacks in Israeli cities, the IDF invaded the West Bank with heavy forces in order to destroy Palestinian terror bases. The operation, known as Defensive Shield, lasted 40 days during which Palestinian sources mislead the world with false Information about thousands of casualties and about a horrible massacre taking place in the refugee camp of Jenin.
Mohammad Bakri, a famous Palestinian actor residing in Israel, entered the refugee camp with a film crew and created his controversial documentary Jenin, Jenin. The film generated enormous anger and five Israeli reserve soldiers, who fought in Jenin and lost thirteen of their friends, sued Bakri for the amount of $700,000, claiming that Jenin, Jenin is libelous. For five years Bakri and the soldiers confronted each other in court.
