Israeli occupation forces this morning closed the headquarters of a media network in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron accusing it of “incitement”.

The Israeli occupation forces closed the headquarters of the Al-Hureyia media network. In a statement, the group said occupation forces raided its headquarters and confiscated broadcasting and media equipment which led to the suspension of the radio station’s work.

A number of its staff members were detained and equipment destroyed. The fate of the workers remains unknown.

The station has also been ordered to close for six months for alleged “incitement” following an Israeli army decision.

The network includes Radio Liberty Forum, Freedom of Information Network and Nawras TV.
