Pan-Arab pa­per shut down

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

RA­MAL­LAH: The Pales­tinian ad­min­is­tra­tion in the oc­cu­pied West Bank shut down the lo­cal of­fice of a pan-Arab news­pa­per this week af­ter ac­cus­ing it of “of­fen­sive” re­port­ing on Pales­tinian se­cu­rity co-or­di­na­tion with Is­rael, of­fi­cials said.

As Pales­tinian-Is­raeli street vi­o­lence surged last month, AlAraby Al-Jadeed daily ac­cused the ad­min­is­tra­tion of jail­ing “dozens of (Pales­tinian) po­lit­i­cal pris­on­ers on charges of re­sist­ing (the Is­raeli) oc­cu­pa­tion”.

The Pales­tinian ad­min­is­tra­tion closed the bureau “as it lacked a li­cence to op­er­ate”.
