Al-Jazeera and The Guardian have started publishing “thousands of pages of leaked diplomatic correspondence to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process” called “the Palestine Papers,” Journalism.co.uk reported. This isn’t leaked information from WikiLeaks, but WikiLeaks documents from Cablegate will be used to complement the coverage.
Al-Jazeera’s source is anonymous. In a statement, Al-Jazeera commented:
“We have taken great care over an extended period of time to assure ourselves of their authenticity. We believe this material will prove to be of inestimable value to journalists, scholars, historians, policymakers, and the general public.”
“We know that some of what is presented here will prove controversial, but it is our intention to inform, not harm, to spark debate and reflection — not dampen it.”
According to Journalism.co.uk, some information has been redacted from the documents.
