US seizes 33 websites used by Iranian radio and television union

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.”
