"The Al Jazeera network won't stop stoking violence over the Mount. I’ve demanded several times that law enforcement authorities close the Al Jazeera bureau in Jerusalem. If this cannot be done due to legal interpretation, I will have necessary rules enacted to remove Al Jazeera from Israel," Benjamin Netanyahu wrote on Facebook.
The Doha-based broadcaster has already been accused by Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Bahrain of supporting terrorism in the region. Its closure was part of an ultimatum issued last month to Qatar, which rejected the demand as unacceptable.
