A joint operation between the IDF and the General Security Service (GSS, also known as the Shabak or Shin Bet) raided the "al-Khalil" (Arabic for "Hevron") radio station in Hevron.

Palestinian media sources report that they confiscated the station's equipment and detained the director and several staff for questioning.

The IDF has confirmed the equipment seizure and noted that the station broadcast content intended to incite the public.

A Civil Administration statement says that "Investigations into the recent attacks found that there is a connection between the incitement that ignites the Palestinian population and the recent terror attacks.

"The radio station broadcast lies about Palestinians being executed and kidnapped by Israeli security forces, offered praise for the families of 'martyrs' on the death of the children, praised terrorists for stabbing and running over Israelis, and called for acts of 'revenge.'"
