Israel to shutdown Al Jazeera news network in country amid war with Gaza

Prime Minister of Israel,  Benjamin Netanyahu, has announced that his Cabinet has unanimously decided to shut down popular news outlet’s,  Al Jazeera’s, operations in Israel.

This decision follows the recent passage of a new media law by Israeli lawmakers, commonly known as the “Al Jazeera law,” which allows the government to prohibit foreign broadcasters if they are considered a threat to national security.

According to CNN, Netanyahu shared the Cabinet’s decision on Sunday labeling Al Jazeera as “the hate channel.”
