Communications Minister Shlomo Karhi (Likud) responded today (Tuesday) on X to Opposition Leader Yair Lapid’s attack on his ministry for seizing equipment belonging to AP on the grounds of violating its law banning al-Jazeera from the country, saying that the decision was adopted by the entire defense establishment.

“Dear Opposition Leader,” he wrote on X, “’Shlomo Karhi’s people,’ are dedicated professionals of the Communications Ministry observing the instructions of the law and decisions of the government.”

“Incidentally, even if you decide to become a freelancer of a terror channel endangering our soldiers, and broadcast the location of our forces with your camera, I will see to it that inspectors of the Communications Ministry will come to you. You should be ashamed.”

“Just to remind you: the law and orders signed unanimously by the government, with the sweeping support of all security bodies, state that devices serving to provide al-Jazeera contents must be seized from any person or corporation. All the more so in this case, where AP people were warned as a goodwill gesture already last week and refused to provide a service to this terror channel.”

“We will continue to act with determination against any who try to harm our soldiers and the security of the state even if you don’t like it.”
