Islamic Jihad broadcaster closes in Gaza, financial crisis

Journalists fired without warning

13 February, 14:44

    (ANSAmed) - GAZA, FEBRUARY 13 - Islamic Jihad broadcaster al-Quds closed its TV studios without warning in Gaza in recent days and fired some of its journalists, although its radio broadcasts and web updates are continuing, according to press sources in Gaza.

    The sources said the TV closure was due to a decrease in foreign funding of Islamic Jihad, a pro-Iran organisation.

    Despite difficulties, transmissions are still ongoing by two other local broadcasters: al-Aqsa TV, which is linked to Hamas and whose studios were bombed by Israel during a military escalation last November; and the Palestinian National Authority's Falastin TV.

    At the end of November, Falastin's studios experienced an attack of vandalism, which the PNA government attributed to Hamas.(ANSAmed).
