The Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) and the Civil Administration shuttered another Palestinian Arab radio station in Hevron overnight Saturday/Sunday, with the IDF emphasizing Sunday morning that the station incited against Israel. 

The ISA took with it the Dream radio station's technical equipment and transmitters, as it has in past radio raids. 

Palestinian Arab news agency Maan reports that IDF forces smashed the doors of the building and raided equipment overnight, stopping broadcasting mid-raid.

This is the third radio station in Hevron Israel has shut down in a month - although Palestinian sources report that one of the stations has started up again under an alternate frequency. 

Last week, security forces shut down Hevron's Al-Khalil radio station overnight; two weeks earlier, an operation against Al-Huriyeh station was carried out specifically to battle "vicious incitement against Israel, encouraging stabbing attacks [...] and support[ing] violent resistance."
