Jamming of Arabsat coming from Ethiopia - Minister
Preliminary investigations into the jamming of Arabsat satellite transmission shows that it is originating from Ethiopia, Telecommunications Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui said Wednesday, calling on Arabsat’s operator to secure new frequencies for its transmission in Lebanon.
“Arabsat told us that the source of the jamming is Ethiopia and it handed us a copy of their complaint they have passed to Ethiopian authorities on this matter,” said Sehnaoui.
Speaking to reporters during a visit to a local satellite station in Mount Lebanon’s Jouret al-Balout, Sehnaoui said that the political atmosphere in the region is likely to be behind the jamming of certain satellite operators.
“The political atmosphere in the region could push some countries to take such a step and start jamming on some operators,” Sehnaoui said.
Several Lebanese channels and the Qatar-based Al-Jazeera have been jammed in the past year, and the frequencies of Arabsat and Nilesat network providers have been jammed since the pro-democracy uprisings and ensuing unrest in Libya and Egypt.

Ethiopia is violating Lebanon and Qatar air space? That can only come if Israel gave the land to jam. This is war.
Woyane is peeing in its pants these days
One of the Woyanes official was overheard through the grape vine saying unless we control the media, it’s possible to have a same faith like Egypt gov’t.
That’s why they are jamming the radio broadcasts, Woyane knows if everyone comes out whole hartedly uprise in Addis Ababa just like the 1974, how royal family was removed let along this rubbish woyanes
Dictators want to brain-wash the people and leave them with no choice but to listen to their boring propaganda & lie always. To cover and hide their crimes from the eyes & ears of the people they resorted to spending in millions on jamming….
Aka Berket who is responsible for communication affairs, is one of the rugged and crude official in charge. Let alone his lie and fabrication, even looking his vilely face is a serious torture and we poor Ethiopians has been subjected to this for decades….
I don’t Ethiopian Autority have any kind of capablity to jam any Arab station it has to be the State of fear of all man kind. you all know who is that the juce.
No money to feed the poor. but when in it comes to wars and jamming all the Satellites of the world, we have money to spare. Sad

I don’t care if Lebanon and Qatar are visiting your fag behind but, I care your nonsense about Israel. Stop it stupid wanna be Arab.
dedeboch from dedebit are scared
Meles is paying to jam media by using the money which he has collected from tax payers and donners.
Everybody has to fight for his freedom and God given right to live as a human being.
ehmmmm who is really peeing? The valiant Weyane or you and the other terrorist parking lot kings?
We will see.
Long live Weyane
Long live EPRDF
Long live Ethiopia and its people.
I am with the governments on this one, after seeing what Aljazeera did to Libya, Egypt, Syria and Yemen promoting unrest and distraction on top of that backing radical Islam to power, then i will say well done to Ethiopian governmnets. the last thing what Ethiopian’s wants at this moment is unrest and distraction.
Propaganda Minister … for various very obvious reasons Germany has stopped having that since Goebbels … Ato Simon Bereket is very much likely someone who can really still be called a Propagnada Minister….
Gragn ahemed: so what?
Lebanon is the country which crashed our jet, the cause is the establishement of
their relations with Shaebia. Especially you must be out of this this site, you are terrorist person in nature and as an individuial.
TPLF, becareful, Cockroaches. We don’t let you to do anything harmful, like what you are doing against peaceful Ethiopians, since the last Twenty plus Years.
When it comes to Arab, we will make you to pee in your pants and we will wiped you out, from wherever you are. No one can save you.
At the past, we heard what you told for Egyptian President with fear behind closed doors. You told him, “we are going to give you some land from Amhara", Mubarak refused. Then, you told him, “Tigray is against Amhara. We are going to divert the Abbay Water into tigray and Egypt can not be affected by the amount of water". No conclusion done yet. TPLF did all these with fear of Egypt. During the discussion, Meles already changed Three wet pants. That has been in French and Arab Media comedies for fun for long time, until now. Believe me, it was real he pee.
We already slaved most of Meles people in Arab Country. What else he want.
I hope my Woyane will jammning also the Washngoten base Sat Amara.It is just the beging and I wish even our gvt will hang all oppositin.
We have control on econom and no one Amara or Oromom will take the power from us.The power is belong to TIgria
