AlJazeeraEnglish | Israel extends ban on Al Jazeera: Restrictions to continue for 45 more days ...

Al Jazeera’s offices will remain shut in Israel for 45 more days, according to Israeli Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi, who says he is “convinced” the broadcasting ban will be extended in the future as well. Announcing the development on X, Karhi thanked Prime Minister Netanyahu and the government for approving the extension. Al Jazeera has sent a comment to the minister through its lawyer, rejecting this decision and denying all accusations and justifications on which the minister based his decision. “We will not allow the Al Jazeera terrorist channel to broadcast in Israel and endanger our fighters. I have now signed the extension of the orders banning Al Jazeera channel broadcasts in Israel,” Karhi said. Israeli police raided Al Jazeera's workspace and confiscated equipment on May 5th, following the government's decision to take Al Jazeera off the air. In April, the Israeli parliament passed a law allowing the government to ban broadcast channels deemed a threat to national security. Al Jazeera’s Imran Khan provides live updates from Amman in Jordan, while Yossi Mekelberg, a Middle East analyst and associate fellow at Chatham House, offers further insight from London.
