The acting Palestinian Authority chief, Mahmoud Abbas, has condemned the Israeli military’s raid on two Palestinian television stations in Tel Aviv-occupied West Bank.

Abbas referred to the raid, which was staged in the early hours of Wednesday, as a blatant attack on freedom of information and opinion and said that the freedom of information was guaranteed by international conventions, the official Palestinian news agency, WAFA, reported on Wednesday.

The attack saw Israeli troops storming the buildings of al-Watan Television and al-Quds Educational Television in the city of Ramallah in West Bank, impounding the stations’ transmitting and broadcasting equipment.

Palestinian caretaker Prime Minister Salam Feyadh joined dozens of journalists in a demonstration staged in Ramallah in West Bank to protest the raid.

“This is part of the aggressive policy of the Israeli occupation that it practices daily against the Palestinian people,” Feyadh said.
