The Voice of Palestine
and since the beginning of the Aqsa Intifada , has been in live coverage of
confrontations in all the Palestinian territories .giving the latest news update
in four languages ‘ Arabic , French , English , and Hebrew . each hour via our
reporters in the region , and reflecting in direct both Population and formal
political point of view , VOP was accused several times by the Israeli Occupying
Authorities of being a precious source of Information for both local and
international mass media , in addition, the Vop radio is
the official Palestinian radio adopting the political discourse of the
Palestinian National Authority.
This aggression, which is a flagrant violation of all international law
and the universal declaration of human rights (article 19, the right for
individual to obtain information), and the freedom of expression, is also a
desperate attempt to stop the Vop transmission.
The Vop hereby appeals to all Arab and international mass media and urges
all international organization defending the right to free expression to condemn
this crime committed by Israeli occupying authorities, which is committed in
parallel with all brutal massacres against Palestinian children and civilians,
as they protest against the Israeli occupation and demand their freedom, as will
as the establishment of their independent Palestinian state with Jerusalem as
Vop, being the voice of truth, justice and peace and the voice of its people and
political spectrum, even transmitting on the short wave (F.M), well remain the
clearest and the strongest.
