Israeli military forces operating in the Palestinian areas of the West Bank shut down a Fatah-affiliated radio station alleged to have broadcast incitement-filled content.

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit released a statement early Tuesday morning announcing that soldiers had confiscated equipment and shuttered the Al-Hurriya radio station based in Hebron.

"Al-Hurriya broadcasts harsh statements filled with incitement against the State of Israel," the army said. "It encourages [Palestinians] to carry out stabbing attacks and it even supports violent processions."
