CAIRO: Hezbollah has denounced Egyptian NileSat’s decision of suspending the broadcast of the movement’s T.V. station from Lebanon.

“The decision is flagrant violation against the freedom of opinion and expression and an attempt to mute the resistance…This denounced procedure that has been committed by Telecom Egypt is far away what is expected from what is hoped from Egypt at this stage,” the group stated Wednesday.

The Egyptian Satellite Company, NileSat, announced Tuesday that it had suspended the broadcast of Lebanese al-Manar T.V. channel over complaints from “inciting sectarian violence.”

In late February, Saudi Arabia has blacklisted four companies and three business men for their links with the group, Reuters reported. In March Cairo-based Arab League has blacklisted the Hezbollah as “terrorist group.”
