Israel: Regime moves to ban al-Jazeera


“Israeli Communications minister Ayoub Kara has announced his intention to see a total ban of the al-Jazeera news network within Israel, including the revocation of all affiliated journalists’ credentials. … Kara said he expects Israel’s parliament to move quickly on such a ban, and called on the Press Office to work quickly with him to impose the ban ‘as quickly as possible.’ Analysts, however, say it’s not likely to be so easy.” (08/06/17)
