Netanyahu vows to close Palestinian satellite channels

Monday, 14 March 2016

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday vowed to close Palestinian satellite channels, accusing them of inciting against Israel.

At the opening of the Israeli Cabinet meeting, Netanyahu said: “We are working against satellite channels that encourage the killing of Israelis, so I spoke over the weekend with the French President Francois Hollande on this subject.”

Netanyahu added: “I previously requested from the French president to stop broadcasting Al-Aqsa TV channel which broadcasts through French satellite, and the channel was indeed removed from these satellites, but this channel returned to broadcasting through another satellite, we are working in other places and through other channels in order to halt these broadcasts.”

Al-Aqsa TV announced last Friday that the Eutelsat ceased its broadcast before announcing its new frequency on the same satellite.

The offices of the satellite channel Palestine Al Yawm were shut down early on Friday by the Israeli army. The office manager was arrested.
