Egypt’s minister of legal affairs and parliamentary councils, Mofid Shehab, criticized Al-Jazeera Saturday for instigating “a civil war” with its reports on a steel barrier being built on the border with Gaza.

“A number of Arab satellite stations, and this one especially, have placed themselves as responsible for the sovereignty of our country, and as usual have poisoned the public against the state,” Shehab said in an interview with the state-owned Al-Ahram

He said television networks were working against the Egyptian government “in order to engender a civil war and inflame the Egyptian and Arab streets, and cause a clash of official authorities”.
