Haniyeh applauds Palestinian media for Gaza coverage

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- Gaza prime minister Ismail Haniyeh on Saturday praised the Palestinian media for their positive role in covering Israel's eight-day assault on the coastal enclave.

Haniyeh telephoned Ma'an News Agency's editor-in-chief Nasser Lahham to give thanks for the support that West Bank media outlets gave the people of Gaza during Israel's bombardments.

"The most important achievement of this war was the support the West Bank showed reflecting that Palestinian blood is the same. That was very impressive and very inspiring for the Palestinian resistance," Haniyeh said.

The Gaza prime minister applauded the "honorable patriotic coverage" during the war, adding that he watched Ma'an-Mix satellite TV every day to follow events.

Haniyeh and Hamas officials were particularly focused on the live translation of the Hebrew press and the "accurate analysis of the course of the war and the possibilities of a ground incursion."

Lahham thanked Haniyeh, saying that Palestinian journalists "are reserve soldiers and supporters of their people praising all Palestinian national movement leaders regardless of their political affiliation because Palestine is greater than any political disagreements."
