The United States seized 33 websites used by the Iranian Islamic Radio and Television Union and three websites operated by the Iran-backed Kataib Hezbollah militia, the US Justice Department said.
US law enforcement seized control of the websites of two Iranian state-controlled news groups, Press TV and Al-Alam, and of the Al-Masirah TV channel of Yemen’s Houthis, statements posted on the websites showed Tuesday.
Each site included a single page with a declaration that it had been “seized by the United States Government” and a reference to US sanctions laws, as well as the FBI and US Department of Commerce.
Other sites, including a Palestinian-directed broadcast and an Arabic-language religious and cultural station, were also seized, according to the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, which owns Al-Alam.
The IRIB accused the US of suppressing freedom of expression and collaborating with Israel and Saudi Arabia to “prevent pro-resistance media channels exposing US allies’ crimes in the region.”
