The broadcasting of Al Arabiya News Channel has been deliberately jammed from unknown sources for sometime early today before it was resumed normally. This deliberate jamming aims at interrupting Al Arabiya’s direct and continuous coverage of the events taking place in several parts of the Arab region, especially in Libya and Syria.
In order to allow Al Arabiya viewers to have unbiased coverage to all the news around the Arab world, the channel can be watched on its original permanent frequency on the Nilesat (12341 Vertical), in addition to the alternative frequencies (12476) and (11488). Viewers can either do an auto-search for the new frequency or through the manual search.
This is not the first time that the broadcasting of Al Arabiya has been deliberately jammed. It happened before at the beginning of the Libyan revolution and the jamming was proved to have come from a Qaddafi intelligence center east of Tripoli.
