Al Jazeera condemns ‘dangerous’ Israel action against network

Al Jazeera condemns what it calls “dangerous” moves by the Israeli government to ban the Qatar-based news channel amid a long-running battle over its reporting intensified by coverage of the Gaza war.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said he will use new powers to stop Al Jazeera being shown in Israel, calling it a “terrorist channel.” In response, Al Jazeera says it “condemns these statements and sees [them] as nothing but a dangerous ludicrous lie.”
