Israeli authorities do raids at Palestinian media

The Israeli authorities have invaded at Palestinian television stations and production companies in the West Bank.

According to the newspaper Haaretz they took equipment and some organizations forced to close down. They also arrested two Palestinians.

The Israeli forces claimed that the companies concerned are suspected of sedition. The authorities continue according to a statement "action against incitement to terrorism" to prevent attacks.

The Palestinian Authority reacted furiously on the raids. The governing body blamed Israel parties to sabotage "that bring to light the crimes of the occupiers". Some of the eight affected companies would have ties to Hamas.
