Hagar Shezaf is the new West Bank correspondent of Haaretz. In this episode she discusses her current reportage on the spike in violent attacks by West Bank settlers against Palestinians.

Hagar also spoke about an explosive expose she published in Haaretz last summer, where she revealed that Israel’s security establishment was systematically combing through archives and picking out embarrassing or incriminating documentation of what could ebe considered as war crimes against the Palestinian civilians during the 1948 war, the so-called Nakba.
