Cellcom Israel Ltd. (NYSE: CEL) (the "Company") provided an update with respect to a purported class action pending against the Company in respect to the network malfunction that occurred on December 1, 2010. An amendment has been filed with the court under the previously reported procedural agreement among the plaintiffs of several purported class actions filed against the Company in relation to the malfunction.
