A video production studio in Tel Aviv that has made Israeli military propaganda videos and propaganda films for the last decade has announced it will cease operations at the end of the year.
The Israeli military has made a number of videos featuring footage of Palestinian children being abused by Israeli soldiers, and there have been numerous military propaganda films released in recent years featuring Palestinians as captives and children as soldiers.
This will be the last year of the company’s operations.
“After we are done, we will close the office in Tel-Aviv,” Yisrael Katz, the company director, told Haaretz, “and the only reason for that is the fact that the [Israeli] government won’t pay for it.
The reason is simple: I can’t do this anymore.”
The company, called Avi Productions, was founded by three young men in 2012, according to its website, and its videos have featured footage of Palestinians being beaten by Israeli forces.
Since 2014, the videos have been distributed to thousands of students in Israeli schools, and students in the Palestinian territories have expressed concerns that some of the footage is “not suitable for use in classrooms.”
“We don’t want to be a problem for the Israeli government,” said Shadi Abu Ezzedine, an 18-year-old student at an Israeli high school who has participated in a Facebook page set up to discuss the videos.
“I don’t think that we are supposed to be able to say anything, or that the Israeli army is allowed to use our faces.
We’re not even allowed to say that we were there.”
Katz told Haavara that Avi is no longer able to make the videos because the Israeli military refuses to pay for its expenses.
He added that the government has threatened to seize the video production facility if the videos aren’t stopped.
“There is no doubt that the military is not a democracy,” Katz said.
“They have a clear vision.
The video production industry is a major source of revenue for the government, and they have a vested interest in keeping this from happening.”
In a statement released Tuesday, Avi said that it will be closing the offices of the production company at the beginning of the month.
The company is based in Tel Aviv, a suburb of Jerusalem.
“We are very grateful to the students who supported us and have continued to support us through difficult times,” the statement said.
Avi’s videos have sparked international outrage, and the Israeli media has been flooded with accusations that the videos are “disgusting propaganda” that glorify terrorism and incitement to murder.
In December, the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem reported that over 600 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli security forces since the start of 2014, and that the number of Palestinians killed by security forces has tripled since the beginning, to more than 1,500.
A recent survey conducted by B’tselem found that nearly 60 percent of Israelis polled said that the violence against Palestinians in the occupied territories had been justified.
The study, which was conducted in September, found that almost half of Israelis surveyed had personally witnessed violence against Palestinian civilians.
