Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement has strongly condemned the latest decision by the Egyptian satellite service provider, Nilesat, to stop airing its news channel, Al-Manar.

Hezbollah decried the decision in a statement issue on Wednesday, according to al-Ahed news website.

The movement said the decision is a blatant violation of the freedom of opinion and expression as well as an attempt to "silence the voice of resistance".

Hezbollah also stressed that such unjust measures will not succeed in silencing the voice of the pro-resistance media outlets in Lebanon and Palestine.

The movement called on the company to reverse its decision immediately and urged the Egyptian authorities to exert pressure on the satellite operator to restore Al-Manar.

The statement added that the Egyptians know before others that such actions serve the Israeli goals and demands, Press TV reported.
