Israel designated the Hamas television channel Al Aqsa as a terrorist organisation.

The Israel Security Agency found that the Hamas terrorist organisation used the satellite channel to recruit terrorists and pass messages to them in the West Bank. The agency and the Defence Ministry’s national anti-economic terrorism unit recommended the move, which the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Wednesday.

Al Aqsa reporters praise rocket attacks on Israel and violence against Israelis.

The U.S. government designated the station as a terror group in 2010.

The Israeli army bombed the channel’s Gaza headquarters in November and demolished the building, but Al Aqsa is broadcasting from another location.
