A simultaneous raid was also carried out on media company in Hebron that supplies information to another Hamas broadcasting channel, Al-Aqsa TV. Various items were also seized during the raid.
According to Palestinian sources, computers and hard drives were among the items which were impounded from the second company, but the IDF says that it only confiscated memory cards and media content as part of an ongoing investigation into the two stations’ activities in order to search for materials containing support for Hamas and incitement to terror.
Broadcasting equipment, the IDF sought to emphasize, was left untouched. If incitement material is discovered on the devices removed from the station, further steps are expected to be taken.
The raid is the third or fourth to have taken place within the last two years on media stations and channels in the Hebron area, with most raids being conducted following suspicions of incitement.
