A pirate radio station in the de facto Palestinian capital of Ramallah is believed to be behind repeated disruptions of air traffic communications at Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport.

Israeli Communications Minister Ariel Attias said that the Ramallah radio station ceased broadcasting after the source of the disruptions was discovered.

Hundreds of pirate radio stations belonging to both Palestinians and Israelis operated out of Judea and Samaria.
