As its jihadists fired rockets into Israel, Hamas broke into Israel’s Channel Two TV on March 11 and broadcast four minutes of terrorist propaganda.

The television broadcast was hijacked at the precise moment of the rocket launches, which caused no casualties.

Hamas broke into a live satellite broadcast and showed footage featuring videos of terrorist activity in various locations around Israel, as well as warnings and threats.

Israeli media said it was the second time in recent years that Hamas had broken in to Channel Two broadcasts.

Officials said the break-in was accomplished by Hamas broadcasting a strong signal on the frequency used by Channel Two.

Israel in recent days has tried without success to shut down television stations in the Palestinian Authority that broadcast incitement and hatred of Israelis. It has shut down a radio station and European satellite company Eutelsat has announced that it is stopping Hamas broadcasts on its satellite because of the incitement it transmits.
