Israel targets Al Jazeera offices; to take the network off-air

  • Employees of Qatar based news network and TV channel Al Jazeera are seen at their Jerusalem office

Kara said Al Jazeera should be banned from broadcasting from Israel on grounds of incitement.

These countries have broken the 5 June with Qatar accusing it of supporting "terrorism" and require, among other things, to normalize their relations, the closure of Al-Jazeera.

Kara said the measures were meant to bolster Israel's security and "to bring a situation that channels based in Israel will report objectively".

Israel said on Sunday it planned to close the local offices of al-Jazeera, after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused the Arab satellite news broadcaster of incitement behind deadly terror attacks.

Al Jazeera reported on its website that it was blocked from attending the news conference where Mr Kara made the announcement.

According to an article on Al-Jazeera, Rami Khouri from the American University in Beirut, said the plan was "very typical of regimes" in the region.

Saudi Arabia and Jordan have both shut Al Jazeera bureaux this year as part of the ongoing "cold war" playing out in the Gulf, which culminated in the full blockade of Qatar.

Kara said he expects Israel's parliament, the Knesset, to consider his request in the next session. "The Al-Jazeera channel continues to incite violence around the Temple Mount", Netanyahu wrote in a Facebook post, referring to the Haram Al-Sharif compound in Jerusalem, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.

"I will go through the legislatory mechanism to create the authority in which I can act freely", Kara said.

"Al Jazeera deplores this action from a state that is called the only democratic state in the Middle East and considers what it has done is risky", an unnamed official with Al Jazeera told the AFP. "Since its inception, Al Jazeera has provided Israel with a rare conduit for airing its viewpoints to Arab and Muslim audiences and participating in dialogue with them". You can not fool me with Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera Arabic.

Israel is to join regional Arab states that have already shut the station after accusing the broadcaster of inciting violence, Communications Minister Ayoub Kara said. "Changing the law in order to shut down a media organization for political reasons is a slippery slope", Glenys Sugarman, executive secretary for the group, told the Times of Israel.

Al Jazeera has come under attack from several governments in the region in recent months to the concern of free press campaigners.
