Jeddah, Ramadan 10, 1438, Jun 5, 2017, SPA -- The Ministry of Culture and Information has closed Al-Jazeera Channel's office in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and withdrew its license.
The move came after Al-Jazeera has promoted plots of terrorist groups, supported the Houthi militias in Yemen, and tried to break the Saudi internal ranks by inciting them to leave the country and harm the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
