Israeli Forces Shut Palestinian Islamic Jihad Station

Friday, 11 March 2016 05:25 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say forces have shut down a media organization run by Palestinian Islamic Jihad, a militant group, as part of a crackdown to curb months of violence.

Spokeswoman Luba Samri said the head of al-Youm TV station was detained in Friday's raid. She said the outlet called for attacks on Israelis.

Israel has been struggling to contain near-daily Palestinian attacks on civilians and security forces that have killed 28 Israelis and two Americans since September. Some 179 Palestinians died by Israeli fire in that time, the majority attackers Israel says.

Israel says the violence is fueled by a campaign of Palestinian incitement spread on Palestinian media and social networking sites. Palestinians say it stems from anger at nearly five decades of Israeli rule.
