Statement by the Foreign Press Association regarding Al Jazeera [April 4, 2024]

The Foreign Press Association calls on the Israeli government to halt its plan to shut down Al Jazeera. 

This is a blatant attempt to stifle the media. Shuttering a media outlet is a step that is characteristic of some of the world’s most repressive governments. It is a move that rejects democratic ideals. It also poses a dangerous precedent that could lead the government to shut down other foreign media outlets.

We urge the government to step back from this dangerous move.

The Board of the Foreign Press Association
