TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Wednesday that his website is due to release thousands of documents related to Israel, Israel’s Channel 10 reported Thursday.

In an interview with Al-Jazeera quoted by the Israeli daily Haaretz, Assange said that only very few files related to Israel were published so far and that WikiLeaks intends on releasing many more documents.

Assange, who was recently released from a British prison, said that he holds 3,700 more files related to Israel, and the main source of them is the US embassy in Tel Aviv, according to the report.

Assange said in the interview that WikiLeaks plans on releasing over the next six months cables that were classified as top secret regarding Israel’s month-long war with Hezbollah in Lebanon in the summer of 2006.

He also claimed he holds documents indicating Mossad involvement in the assassination of Hamas operative Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh in Dubai in January, Haaretz reported.

Assange said that WikiLeaks had not had any direct or indirect relations with Israel, but said he was sure Israeli intelligence is monitoring WikiLeaks’ activities closely, the report said.
