IDF Shuts Down Palestinian Radio Station For Incitement

YERUSHALAYIM (AP) -

The Israeli military raided a Palestinian radio station in Chevron overnight Tuesday and confiscated equipment it said was being used to broadcast calls to attack Israelis.

It says the Al Hurria station has been encouraging stabbing attacks and glorifying the attackers.

The station’s director, Ayman Qawasmeh, said Israel troops raided the station after 2 a.m., destroyed equipment and confiscated transmitters.

“This is a clear violent aggression on the Palestinian media,” he said. “We didn’t incite, we just reported the Israeli daily crimes against our people in Chevron. They want to silence our voice.”
