WikiLeaks will reveal 6,000 documents on Israel soon, its founder, Julian Assange has derclared, saying that they will shed some light on its confrontation of Iran's nuclear program and its role in the assassination of prominent Hizbullah official Imad Mughniyeh.
The new portion of diplomatic cables will also reveal Israel's assessment of Hezbollah's mounting capability to strike directly at Tel Aviv with an arsenal of more than 20,000 missiles.
Mohammed Tantawi, the current head of Egypt's ruling generals, was hindering Israeli efforts to stop arms smuggling within the Gaza strip, according to Israeli security forces, another cables say.
"The documents we released in the past few months were the fuel that ignited the Arab revolts," Julian Assange added before Israel's Yediot Ahronot, clarifying that there were secret U.S. Embassy cables published in Arab newspapers, stating that, should there be a popular revolt supported by the army in Tunis, the U.S would support the army.
Another of the Israeli cables will state that the King of Bahrain, whose Arab state has recently been shaken by protests, has had friendly links with the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency.
