Army Radio head kept on for 6 months

Half a year after Army Radio head Yaron Dekel was hauled in for broadcasting a segment on Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman has extended his term by six months.

In July, Liberman and other lawmakers had strenuously objected to Dekel’s decision to run the segment on Darwish, who is considered a Palestinian national symbol and was a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization.

Liberman will continue to evaluate the necessity of Army Radio remaining on the air as part of the ministry, according to reports.
