Hebron – On Saturday, the Israeli military raided a Palestinian radio station in Hebron and confiscated equipment it said was being used to broadcast calls to attack Israelis. The military said it shut down the El-Khalil radio station overnight, marking the second time Israel has closed a Hebron station it accuses of inciting violence.
The military said El-Khalil had encouraged stabbings and glorified Palestinian attackers. It did not provide further examples of the incitement.
The station’s manager, Amjad Shawar, said more than 40 soldiers raided the station, seizing or destroying equipment. “They also took broadcast parts and gave us an order banning us from working for six months because they accuse us of incitement,” he said.
