IDF Raids Palestinian Radio Station to Stop Incitement

The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) shut down Al-Huriya radio station in Hebron in the West Bank, saying that the station was inciting violence against Israelis. The station director called the raid “a violent aggression.” Terrorist attacks have continued to sweep through the country, leaving 11 Israelis dead and more than 120 injured in what Palestinians are calling the “knife intifada.”

Also this week in Israel in the News:
