Israel Closes Palestinian Radio Station

Israel Closes Palestinian Radio Station

Israel says it has shut down a Palestinian radio station in Al-Khalil. The move comes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Palestinian leaders of stoking the violence that has plagued the region.
On Tuesday, the Israeli military raided Al Hurria radio station overnight. It was founded in 2002 in Gaza, but moved its office to Al-Khalil in the West Bank following Hamas’ ascension to power in Gaza. The military did not disclose for how long the radio station would be closed, Deutsche Welle reported.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration has faced criticism for its hardline approach toward the conflict, with many in the international community accusing it of using unnecessary force in dealing with Palestinian protestors.
To date, around 69 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli authorities while only 11 Israelis have been killed in allegedly Palestinian attacks.
