  • Israel Closes Aljazeera Office In Jerusalem Depending On The Boycott Arab Countries


    Agencies (Qasioun) - Israel is moving forward to revoke media credentials of Al Jazeera journalists and close the network's office in Jerusalem, the country's communication minister has announced. 


    Ayoub Kara made the announcement on Sunday during a press conference in Jerusalem, where Al Jazeera was barred from attending. 


    "We have based our decision on the move by Sunni Arab states to close the Al Jazeera offices and prohibiting their work," Kara said, adding that the channel is being used by groups to "incite" violence - accusation that the network has denied.
