Israel might soon deprive those detained for security-related offenses of a timely meeting with a lawyer, according a wartime proposal that Justice Minister Yariv Levin is raising for cabinet support today.

Levin is asking the cabinet to support legislative changes to custody regulations, so that detainees suspected of committing a war-related security offense can continue to be interrogated.

Israel is believed to have detained hundreds of Hamas terrorists who crossed the border to carry out massacres in Israeli communities.
