Israel Shuts Down Media Foundation for Youth in Jerusalem

Israel’s Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman issued a military order on Monday closing Elia Youth Media Foundation, a media group for Palestinian youngsters in occupied Jerusalem.

In the order, he designated the foundation as a terrorist organization that is affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

Israeli intelligence claims that Elia produces tapes, pictures and news described as inflammatory.

The Israeli occupation authorities have been carrying out a wide-ranging campaign to impose its sovereignty upon all aspects of life in Jerusalem, and this campaign escalated after US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in December last year.
