Gaza’s government has approved the launch of a new satellite TV channel, ‘Al-Raay’, which means ‘The Opinion’ in English. A meeting of the Cabinet confirmed that the local government would finance the station.
Hamas has had a channel on air (Al Aqsa) since 2006. BBC Monitoring is now reporting that this new station will be the first satellite channel to specifically cover Gaza and Palestinian issues.
Gaza is run by a Hamas-majority government.
