Israel Defense Forces soldiers and Shin Bet operatives raided the offices of a Palestinian radio station in Hebron overnight Saturday, confiscating equipment and documents, the military said, citing Al-Khalil radio’s “broadcasts of incitement.” It’s the second time the army has closed a Hebron station it accuses of inciting violence.

The raid came after a violent day of clashes between Palestinian and Israeli security forces in the West Bank and along the border fence with Gaza, and is the second of its kind the past month: Three weeks ago, the IDF swept the offices of Minbar Al-Hurriah 92.7 FM, shutting it down for similar reasons.

According to eyewitness accounts, the soldiers arrived at the station with a closure order shuttering the station and forbidding anyone from entering its offices. The radio said that two of its broadcasters, Mohammed Aka’anbi and Mohammad Abido, were summoned for questioning. The station has been shut down twice in the past by IDF order, first in 2002 and then again in 2008.
