Apr 02, 2024

Washington [US], April 2: White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre has expressed concern about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's push to stop Al Jazeera's operations in Israel.
"We believe in the freedom of the press. It is critical. It is critically important, and the United States supports the critically important work of journalists around the world, and that includes those who are reporting in the conflict in Gaza," Jean-Pierre told reporters.
"So we believe that work is important. The freedom of the press is important. And if those reports are true, it is concerning to us."
