Israel Interrupts Hamas Radio, TV Broadcasts in Gaza

[AFP] Hamas on Saturday accused Israel of interrupting its radio and television broadcasts in Gaza. A broadcast on Al-Aqsa television was interrupted with an image of a ringing phone that no one was answering. "Hamas leaders are hiding and they are leaving you on the front line," says a voice in Arabic. On Friday, Hamas' political supremo Khaled Meshaal was calling on Palestinians to rise up against Israel when his picture suddenly disappeared from the Al-Aqsa TV broadcast. "Hamas has misled you and abandoned you," a man's voice said in Arabic. "If you call any leader of Hamas, nobody will answer." A broadcast on Al-Aqsa radio was interrupted with a man's voice speaking in Arabic: "Hamas leaders are lying to you and they are hiding in hospitals. Launching rockets puts civilians in danger."
