Overnight, armed with an order from Central Command, the IDF, Israel Police, and members of Shabak coordinated to shut down a radio station broadcasting incitement against Israel.

The radio station, called "Alsanabel," was based out of Dora, a city just southwest of Hevron.

Alsanabel is known for broadcasting incitement to kill Israelis. Its broadcasts supported violent attacks on Israelis, praised terrorists for their acts, and encouraged protest against Israel in all forms, violent and non-violent.

Last night's raid was instigated after a final broadcast of incitement tipped the scales.

When security forces moved in, they seized technical equipment and transmitters used by the station.

They also arrested 5 employees of the radio station, who have been taken in for questioning.
