Al-Quds Educational Television resumed on Thursday broadcast, a week after Israeli soldiers raided the Ramallah-based TV station and seized its transmitters and other equipment. The resumption of broadcast was done in the presence of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who praised the station for resuming broadcast within a short time. Soldiers raided Al-Quds Educational Television, which is part of Al-Quds University and its media campus, and Wattan TV during the same night and seized their broadcast equipment. Fayyad and the Palestinian Authority strongly condemned the raid and called it an act of piracy. They said Israel seized the transmitters as part of an attempt to take the TVs’ frequencies for the use of Israeli cellular phone companies. Wattan has not yet resumed broadcast.
