Israel Shuts Down Second Palestinian Radio Station in West Bank - @offshorebroker

Ramallah (dpa) – Israeli military forces on Saturday raided a Palestinian radio station in the southern West Bank, confiscating equipment and ordering it shuttered for six months, in the second such move against a broadcaster this month.

Amjad Shawar, director of Radio Hebron, said soldiers in the early morning hours ransacked the offices, located in a Palestinian Authority-controlled area.

Shawar called on the Palestinian leadership and the international community to take steps to prevent Israel from restricting media outlets.
