Israel to close Al Jazeera, mouthpiece of Palestine’s cause

'israël" fermera Al Jazeera, porte-voix de la cause de la Palestine

Palestinian factions condemned the Israeli move to curb the free speech, mainly by 
targeting Al Jazeera, which is considered the main mouthpiece of the Palestinian cause.


Israeli Communication Minister Ayoob Kara said on Sunday that Israel is preparing to close Al Jazeera’s office in Jerusalem.

Kara said he had requested that the government press office revoke press credentials of Al Jazeera’s journalists.

He said that he would join the Gulf countries, adding: “These countries say the channel [Al Jazeera] is a tool of Daesh, Hezbollah and Iran; we are supporting this.”

The move follows Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s call for the office to be shut down, accusing it of inflaming tensions around Al-Aqsa Mosque.

On Thursday, Al Jazeera issued a statement saying that it would use all necessary legal measures to close it down.

Palestinian factions condemned the Israeli move to curb the free speech, mainly by targeting Al Jazeera, which is considered the main mouthpiece of the Palestinian cause.

Al Jazeera used to challenge the Israeli narrative about the incidents taking place in the occupied Palestine and the Palestinian territories.

It courageously exposes the Israeli violations against Palestine, the Palestinians and the Palestinian historic and holy sites.
