 For the second time in the course of two weeks, the Israeli Forces shut down a media outlet in the city of Hebron. After closing Al-Hurriya radio station on November 03, 2015, the Israeli Forces came back and closed Al-Khalil radio station. 

It should be marked that the Israeli Forces raided the area of Ras Al-Jura where the radio station is located and asked the workers there to evacuate the building in preparation for closing the station.

Israeli soldiers then cut off the power and internet and landline cables at the station building. Other soldiers deactivated the surveillance system, confiscated the transmission devices and moved them to an unidentified place through military trucks.
