  Israeli foreign minister to visit Morocco next week Half a million people are expected to attend a motorcycle rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, even though health officials are concerned it could be a super spreader event. CBS News correspondent Mola Lenghi spoke with one doctor who says his entire team is in place for the event, and no one is taking vacation time.

But this time, Wafa aims to impose on the Palestinian-Israeli media scene, said since the agency's headquarters in Ramallah, its editor, Khouloud Assaf. Locked behind the separation wall built by Israel in the early 2000s, the occupied West Bank Palestinians have become almost invisible within Israeli society. Their cause and their claims, are a distant memory for the Israelis. The young Israeli generations know nothing of their struggle. Their struggle, their actions are qualified as terrorist acts by the political class of the Hebrew State, and by most of the Israeli media. ► To listen

Counter censorship and rightward Israeli society

's Hebrew service of the Palestinian Wafa agency wants to overcome the main difficulty, "the censorship of the Israeli media" by the command of the state's armed forces Hebrew says the editor of Wafa. "The return of a true service in Hebrew, broadcasting daily in the official language of Israel is to directly influence the Israeli public," said Khouloud Assaf said. According to her, with rare exceptions, the majority of Israeli media broadcast a partial and biased picture of the Palestinian reality.

Yet, major Israeli media journalists who speak Arabic, who read Arabic. But the agency Wafa said he wanted to resume his service in Hebrew to counter it believes a "rightward" of the Israeli press of "increasingly racist." The editor of Wafa agency admits: Israeli society is not completely insensitive to the Palestinian cause. Khouloud Assaf, even remembers receiving a hundred applications from Israeli journalists wishing to work for the agency Wafa between 2009 and 2015. But the new service in Hebrew only has currently 6 journalists. The editor believes that this is a good start.
