Israeli PM vows to enact Al Jazeera broadcast ban

Update : 02 Apr 2024, 14:17

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged Monday to enact a ban on broadcasts in Israel from news channel Al Jazeera using authority lawmakers newly voted to grant him.

The potential ban escalates the running conflict between Israel's government
and the Qatar-based channel that has intensified during Israel's war with
Hamas in Gaza.

"The terrorist channel Al Jazeera will no longer broadcast from Israel. I
intend to act immediately in accordance with the new law to stop the channel's activities," Netanyahu said on X, formerly Twitter.

Al Jazeera said "this latest measure comes as part of a series of systematic Israeli attacks to silence Al Jazeera".
