Just Journalism, the organisation set up three years ago to monitor media coverage of Israel, is closing down.

A brief statement announcing the closure on its website this afternoon told supporters: "Despite our extremely modest budget it has become increasingly difficult to financially sustain the operation in the current economic environment".

As well as daily online briefings, it published more detailed reports to expose "skewed" reporting of Israel.

Its advisory board includes MP Denis MacShane, political commentator Robin Shepherd, think-tank head Douglas Murray and the editor of Standpoint magazine Daniel Johnson.
