Police have opened an investigation – Channel 20


After the attack on the Channel 20 staff by left-wing demonstrators last night (Tuesday) in Habima Square in Tel Aviv, the police announced the opening of an investigation into the matter.

President Reuven Ruby Rivlin condemned the attack, saying: “We must not accept such looks with equanimity. No journalist should be required to be security while performing his duties, whatever his position may be. Do not close your eyes, this is not our way. This is not the way of a people. Israel”.

In addition, many members of the media and members of the Knesset condemned the heinous event. The Prime Minister, Transport Minister Miri Regev, condemned the attack on the panelists on her Twitter account and wrote: “In the morning, police attack, in the evening journalists. I strongly condemn the attack on Channel 20 presenters tonight in Tel Aviv. Their propaganda. Shame and disgrace. “

BTP Minister Amir Ohana responded: “The attempt to silence a Channel 20 journalist and thwart a news broadcast is not the first harassment of this channel: As a Member of Knesset, I fought with my colleagues to prevent attempts to disrupt his broadcasts and not allow him to broadcast news. As usual, these attempts to block freedom of opinion and expression, such as the “Israel Today” law, come from those who are called Democrats but deserve the nickname that describes them faithfully: “Fascists.”

Communications Minister Yoaz Handel in response to the incident: “I will not accept an attack on journalists. Unfortunately, I have had to repeatedly condemn such attacks. Last week, Moshe Nussbaum was a Channel 20 journalist. Violence is always violence, and it takes a hard hand from the police.”

MK Ophir Katz said he responded to the attack and said: “Repulsive and dangerous violence. Where are all the guardians of press freedom and freedom of expression? Are they silent about shock and shock? Probably still preparing the condemnations for the case, we will wait.”

MK Shlomo Qara from the Likud also said in response to the attack that: “Those who uphold democracy have a hard time digesting a patriotic broadcast. “Freedom of expression ends within the confines of their leftist agenda.”

“They are ashamed of the value they are fighting for. It is good that in a few hours we will pass the law here in the Knesset that prohibits the protesters from going beyond their limits of disgrace.”

The journalists’ organization said in a statement that it “condemns the violence that took place this evening against the broadcasting station in Habima Square. The journalists and the media are fulfilling an important public mission in these complex days and they must be allowed to carry it out without fear or apprehension.”

Last night (Tuesday) during the broadcast of the Patriots program on Channel 20, where a broadcast station was set up with two panelists in Habima Square in Tel Aviv – Yariv Oppenheimer and Idit Silman, the black flag demonstrators arrived in the broadcast area, attacked the broadcast station and blew up the live broadcast. From the broadcast:
