This decision constitutes a serious violation of freedom of the press and expression and calls for the repeal of such measures and practices, which in this day and age of technological developments, is something of the past; and as suppression of voice and opinion is no longer possible in our day and age. “At 5 pm on June 12, we were surprised to learn that our site had been blocked”, said Hasan Asfour, general supervisor of Amad Media (one of 11 sites affected by the ban). “We contacted internet service providers such as Mada and Hadara, and we learnt that the website had been banned and blocked within the West Bank following a decision of the Attorney General, and that the ban was limited to the West Bank with no prior alert and no clear reasons or justifications”.
