Syria says Western intelligence plans to hijack channel frequencies.

| DAMASCUS, July 22 (KUNA) -- The Syrian Information Ministry warned Sunday Western intelligence agencies are planning in cooperation with some Arab parties to hijack the frequencies of Syrian satellite channels for some time to broadcast false news on alleged coup d'etat or certain military defections or the fall of certain cities. The frequencies of Syrian channels are to be hijacked through broadcast control stations in neighboring countries, the ministry said.

False news might be broadcast by Syrian presenters and journalists who work for Arab and Western channels or who might be or have been abducted and pressured to present such false news, it pointed out. Any news that might be broadcast with regard to such alleged information are completely baseless and should be regarded by the citizens as being part of the misleading and fabrication campaign launched against Syria, the ministry added.
