Palestinian authority blocks dozens of Palestinian websites, Including Shehab Agency website

The magistrate court in Ramallah has issued a verdict, at the behest of the Palestinian Authority (PA), approving the blocking of 59 Palestinian and Arab websites for alleged security reasons.

One of the prominent websites to be blocked in Palestine is the Palestine Dialog Forum Network, an affiliate of the Palestinian Information Center (PIC).

The Ramallah magistrate court made the decision based on the PA attorney general’s claims that the continued publication of these sites threaten national security and civil peace, disturb public order, arouse public opinion and insult PA officials.

The decision only targets Palestinian national websites, while different Israeli websites, which incite against the Palestinian people and disseminate lies about them and their national cause, will not be blocked.
