Hezbollah denounced taking the Yemeni broadcaster al-Massirah off air by Egyptian satellite company Nilesat, describing the move as “piracy”.
In a statement released by the party’s Media Relations, Hezbollah condemned the “frantic” attempts by the Arab-Western repression machine in a bid to silence al-Massirah TV.
“These persistent attempts prove the channel’s active and effective role in disclosing the terrorist crimes committed by the US-Saudi aggression against Yemeni civilians and institutions.”
“These attempts also expose the inability of the media outlets employed by the aggression in a bid to justify its crimes,” the statement said.
Hezbollah also stressed that the crime of suspending the transmission of al-Massirah is a “pure piracy”, noting that it violates the international laws which guarantee the freedom of media.
