Press Coverage, and Freedom of Movement

Don't expect too much variety from the press, especially the international media, in the reports from Amona. The army is controlling all access and severely limiting what can be seen.

Here's the official announcement:

January 31st, 2006


As previously stated, due to space constraints, it has been decided that the FPA in coordination with the IDF will set up a joint APTN and Reuters TV media pool in Amona for TV crews wishing to receive live filmed footage of the evacuation. Press wishing to receive the footage should contact either Tzion from APTN at 02-5376660 or Reuters TV at 02-5008661. Additional TV crews and any reporter or stills photographer wishing to enter the evacuation area by foot will be free to do so. It should be noted that there is a walking distance of approximately 1 mile to Amona. Please take this into consideration when preparing your equipment.

Please contact the IDF Spokesperson's News Desk with any further inquiries or problems you may have, 03-6080245/248/308.
