Israel refuses to reveal location of the Green Line

Israeli authorities have refused to disclose information about the precise location of the Green Line claiming that this information would put the country's external relations in danger, Arab48 reported yesterday.

The Movement for the Freedom of Information sent a letter in September 2017 to the Geological Survey of Israel to get information about the Green Line, but the reply was that such information is "highly confidential".

The letter, according to Arab48, had requested details about the historical Green Line which is the demarcation line set out in the 1949 Armistice Agreements between Israeli militias and the Arab armies after the 1948 nakba.

In its response, the body said: "This information could not be disclosed due to fears that it would undermine the country's external relations."

"The letter is related to secret military materials."
