Tehran (IP) - The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) condemned the US action in blocking its affiliated website domains and the resistance front's media as a gross violation of freedom of expression and attack on free and independent media.

Iran PressIran News: The Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB) stated on Wednesday: "The US Department of Justice had blocked the website of Press TV, Al-Alam, Al-Kawthar and Al-Masira with irrational and false excuses."

The statement said the move reflects Washington's arrogant nature and gross violation, and deliberate disregard for international rules and the international system.

In the last two years, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube have also blocked the accounts of resistance front international networks and imposed severe restrictions on their cyber networks, IRIB said in the statement.
